A typical CSV file only has a single record type, your XML file has two of them (presumably parent child).

Do you want company and employee lines interspersed?

Suppose there is more than one PAGE, do we just ignore pages?

Or maybe we just ignore company lines and do employee lines, that is what you seem to be asking for....do you need a header line in the CSV output?

With no header lines and only employee data lines, you could use:

            var doc = new XmlDocument();
            doc.Load("data.xml");
            var columns = doc.SelectNodes("//COLUMNS[COLUMN/@NAME=\"Employees.Reference\"]");
            var x = String.Join(Environment.NewLine, from XmlNode record in columns
                                                     select
                                                         String.Join(",", (from XmlNode column in record.SelectNodes("COLUMN")
                                                                           select column.InnerText)));
            Console.Write(x);

(I filter for Employees.Reference to avoid output of any Company data)
