This is what the XML file looks like:
[sourcecode lang="python"] #XML TO EXCEL FILE import xml.etree.ElementTree as ET from openpyxl import Workbook import os def readFile(filename): ''' Checks if file exists, parses the file and extracts the needed data returns a 2 dimensional list without "header" ''' if not os.path.exists(filename): return tree = ET.parse(filename) root = tree.getroot() #you may need to adjust the keys based on your file structure dict_keys = ["id","first_name","last_name","email","gender","ip_address" ] #all keys to be extracted from xml mdlist =  for child in root: temp =  for key in dict_keys: temp.append(child.find(key).text) mdlist.append(temp) return mdlist def to_Excel(mdlist): ''' Generates excel file with given data mdlist: 2 Dimenusional list containing data ''' wb = Workbook() ws = wb.active for i,row in enumerate(mdlist): for j,value in enumerate(row): ws.cell(row=i+1, column=j+1).value = value newfilename = os.path.abspath("./xml_to_excel.xlsx") wb.save(newfilename) print("complete") return result = readFile("./dataset.xml") if result: to_Excel(result) [/sourcecode]
Resulting Excel File looks like this:
