Have you considered using XSLT to transform the file? If you already have an XSD then mapping the input columns to that should be trivial with a decent XML Development IDE. Check out XML Spy.

Thanks for your suggestion ,however our team is looking for something Open source.let me know if we have something like XML Spy which is open source.

I have the XSD file for my XML file ,Can we convert using some .net plug in ?

XML Spy is just a development tool. SSIS, which you said you were open to using, will do the actual conversion of your CSV file to an XML file using the XSLT file you designed in XML Spy and the XSD you were given. Have a look at the XML Task in SSIS. You would be looking at a config similar to this:



If XML Spy is too pricey search for "free xslt designer" or "open source xml ide" and see what turns up.

Writing XML Transforms (what you will hear XSLT files referred to) can be a little tricky. A really good site for getting the basics down is the W3Schools XSL tutorial and their XPath Tutorial.

Hey Krishna,

Were you able to achieve this? If yes
..
can you guide me how?

I believe XSLT is to transform XML from one format to another not generate from other file formats.

Thanks,
Arun
