Is it possible to read .csv files in xslt and perform some xslt transformations?
Thanks in advance for your help.
You can use the unparsed-text() function in XSLT 2.0 to have an XSLT stylesheet read in your .csv file as a string as a starting point. From there you might want to explore the new regular expression capabilities in XSLT 2.0 to break the chunk of file text into separate lines and from there into separate columns to do your task. Read up about both unparsed-text() function and <xsl:analyse-string/> operation. Also you might find the FXSL library useful. It's mentioned quite a bit on this group.
