One way - but does not use awk
$ grep Cell Test.csv | sed 's/<[^>]*>//g' | sed '$!N;s/\n/;/' | sed 's/ //g'

awk '/<Cell>/{sub(".*<Cell><[^>]+>","",$0);sub("<.*","",$0);s=s";"$0}/<\/Row>/{sub("^;","",s);print s;s=""}' file

I don't know what is the different between this xml file but it not works:

<Table x:FullColumns='1' x:FullRows='1'>
<Row ss:AutoFitHeight='0' ss:Height='35'>
        <Cell ss:MergeAcross='2' ss:StyleID='title'><Data ss:Type='String'>Export Results for Table:</Data></Cell>
        <Cell ss:MergeAcross='1' ss:StyleID='titletext'><Data ss:Type='String'></Data></Cell>
        <Cell ss:MergeAcross='2' ss:StyleID='titletext'><Data ss:Type='String'>Results: 4 Rows</Data></Cell>
<Row ss:AutoFitHeight='0' ss:Height='35'>
        <Cell ss:MergeAcross='2' ss:StyleID='title'><Data ss:Type='String'>Date of creation spreadsheet:</Data></Cell>
        <Cell ss:MergeAcross='1' ss:StyleID='titletext'><Data ss:Type='String'>June 3, 2011, 12:01</Data></Cell>
<Row ss:Height='12'>
<Cell ss:StyleID='columntitleleft'><Data ss:Type='String'>test1</Data><NamedCell ss:Name='_FilterDatabase'/></Cell>
<Cell ss:StyleID='columntitlecenter'><Data ss:Type='String'>test2</Data><NamedCell ss:Name='_FilterDatabase'/></Cell>
<Cell ss:StyleID='columntitlecenter'><Data ss:Type='String'>test3</Data><NamedCell ss:Name='_FilterDatabase'/></Cell>
<Cell ss:StyleID='columntitlecenter'><Data ss:Type='String'>test4</Data><NamedCell ss:Name='_FilterDatabase'/></Cell>

awk '/<Cell>/{sub(".*<Cell><[^>]+>","",$0);sub("<.*","",$0);s=s";"$0}/<\/Row>/{sub("^;","",s);print s;s=""}' test4.xml

the result is empty

grep Cell test4.xml | sed 's/<[^>]*>//g' | sed '$!N;s/\n/;/' | sed 's/ //g'

Is that posible to convert the Rows tags line by line ?
