I am running a PC inventory program that creates XML files. I need to output the data from XML to something that will be importatble to Excel or Access.

Some facts:
I am NOT running SQL Server...this is all done with the built-in MSDE engine in Windows XP
I am NOT a programmer...I'm a hardware technician who needs a simple solution
I cannot install heavy-duty software on my PC; by that, I mean NO SQL Server or operating system

Is there a SIMPLE and inexpensive way to convert XML to any of the following:
CSV (comma-seperated-values)
Access (an MDB database)

? ? ? ? ?

Thanks in advance for any help

can you post a sample xml file? if the 'data' tags are a known group of names, it would be relatively simple to write some code to parse the data from the xml file. we can post the source code in java or create a c++ executable file. depending on the xml files, this can be simple(for you) and inexpensive(free).
