Hi im an infant in perl scripting, Can any body help me in writing the code snippet for my need to parse xml file. i have an xml file which will have tag x,y,z repeating with different values through out the xml start and end tag, i need these different values of x,y,z to collect in excel sheet and write them in a row wise fashion. then read these data put in the excel in a row wise fashion and decide upon printing them based on the values read from the excel. kindly help me.

There are any number of CPAN modules that will assist with that. Search for XML modules and then excel modules. For more info you need to give us the code you have written and the errors it produces.
