in reply to Building a tree 1 leaf at a time

The solution you came up with does seem to work... but how did the header file get generated in the first place? Why is a flatfile being generated to reference an XML file? That just seems wrong.

But more importantly, why do you not want to use what you came up with? Is it slow? What size files are we talking about?

    The file comes from an excel file compiled by someone in an office. The header has to be manually corrected. It is the only format people are qualified to generate. As for why I asked - because I know in Perl there is more than one way and it looks like there is something new to learn if I can wrap my head round XSH2. Thanks for the reply delirium and thanks for the suggestion choroba.
