What Is a CSV to XML Converter?

This tool transforms Comma Separated Values (CSV) data into Extensible Markup Language (XML). Both CSV and XML are data exchange formats but they differ in structure. CSV is a simple tabular data format with rows and columns that uses a delimiter character (such as a comma) to separate data elements. XML is a hierarchical data format that allows data to be structured. Additionally, it supports nested data representation using tags and attributes. As a CSV file may not always use a comma as a column delimiter (for example, it can use a semicolon or a pipe symbol), you can customize the tool to work with another delimiter symbol in the options. Also, if the CSV data uses an unusual quote character to wrap fields, you can specify this new quote symbol in the options. To filter out unnecessary information in CSV, you can skip lines that start with comment characters by specifying them in the options. Comments often start with the hash "#" or a double-slash "//" symbol. If the first row of CSV data contains column headers, you can use this row to generate XML element names. The "Convert Headers" checkbox controls if XML elements use CSV columns or not. The "Ignore Empty Lines" checkbox allows the tool to ignore empty lines present in the CSV data during the conversion process. Several other options control the format of the XML document. The "Generate XML Meta Tags" option prefixes the output with the XML meta tag. This meta tag provides additional information about XML's version and encoding, making it simpler to parse in other programs. The converted XML can be printed as a compact single-line format (minified XML) or as a more visually readable structure with indentation in the form of spaces or tabs. To convert XML back to CSV, you can use our Convert XML to CSV tool. Csv-abulous!


CSV to XML Converter Examples

Convert Transport Data in CSV Format to XML Format

This example converts transport data from a CSV format to an XML format. Each CSV field is converted into a separate XML element, wrapped in opening and closing XML tags. To minimize output data size, it produces XML without indentation.

Bus,Line 101,30min Train,Red Line,40min Taxi,Expressway,15min
<root><row-0>Bus</row-0><row-0>Line 101</row-0><row-0>30min</row-0><row-1>Train</row-1><row-1>Red Line</row-1><row-1>40min</row-1><row-2>Taxi</row-2><row-2>Expressway</row-2><row-2>15min</row-2></root>

element names.
Skip empty lines in CSV data.

indentation (minify XML).

CSV with a Non-Standard Delimiter

In this example, we're working with a CSV file, which uses a non-standard field delimiter. Instead of the typical comma, a vertical line symbol "|" is used to separate the fields. To convert such data into XML, we specify the vertical line symbol in the delimiter option. Additionally, we enable the header conversion mode, which turns values from the first CSV row into XML tag names.

type|size|color T-shirt|30|Blue Jeans|32|Black
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <root> <row-0> <type>T-shirt</type> <size>30</size> <color>Blue</color> </row-0> <row-1> <type>Jeans</type> <size>32</size> <color>Black</color> </row-1> </root>

Turn Fruit CSV Data into XML Data

In this example, we transform CSV data about fruits and their caloric content into XML data. Since the first CSV row serves as the names of columns, we activate the option to convert columns into XML element names. Additionally, we skip empty CSV lines and ignore lines starting with two slashes "//" as they are comments. For better readability, the XML tags in the output document are indented by tabs.

fruit,calories,proteins,carbohydrates,fats,sugars Apple,95,0.5,25,0.3,19 Banana,105,1.3,27,0.4,14 Orange,62,1.2,15,0.2,9 //Mango,60,0.8,15,0.4,14
