Try this: https://www.unix.com/shell-programmin...t-xml-csv.html
if you have Perl. Otherwise please specify which language you must use.

I dont think you understand my point. XML files have a structure that do not necessarily lend themselves to straightforward conversion into CSV files, in which case sed would do the trick. I understand that you are working on a UNIX machine, which means that more than likely you will have access to Perl. Giving you an answer in shell script will merely be a replication of what is in the tried and tested Perl module.

You can use SpreadSheet::ParseExcel
   use Spreadsheet::ParseExcel;

    my $parser   = Spreadsheet::ParseExcel->new();
    my $workbook = $parser->parse('Book1.xls');

    if ( !defined $workbook ) {
        die $parser->error(), ".\n";

    for my $worksheet ( $workbook->worksheets() ) {

        my ( $row_min, $row_max ) = $worksheet->row_range();
        my ( $col_min, $col_max ) = $worksheet->col_range();

        for my $row ( $row_min .. $row_max ) {
            for my $col ( $col_min .. $col_max ) {

                my $cell = $worksheet->get_cell( $row, $col );
                next unless $cell;

                print "Row, Col    = ($row, $col)\n";
                print "Value       = ", $cell->value(),       "\n";
                print "Unformatted = ", $cell->unformatted(), "\n";
                print "\n";

Thanks fo the reply
I used the Spreadsheet-ParseExcel-Simple-1.04 and tried to use the same program given by you by just adding #!/usr/local/bin/perlin the first line
but i got the below program.
Can't locate Spreadsheet/ParseExcel.pm in @INC (@INC contains: C:/Perl/site/lib
C:/Perl/lib .) at xmltocsv.pl line 3.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at xmltocsv.pl line 3.

Please guide
