1) go to https://localhost:8443/webtools/control/viewdatafile
2) enter the complete path to the above file in the first field
3) submit the form
4) the second field is now a drop down box; select the only entry 
present there: "party"
5) in the third field (Data Filename or URL:) enter the path to the csv 
file containing your data
6) in the last field (Save to entity xml file:) enter the path to the 
xml file you want to create (if you leave this field empty the output 
will be on screen)

However you have to remove all the " from your csv file because they 
will mess the xml file; i.e. the supported format is this:


Hope this helps,
