In my application, a user can enter a value for an item, like this:

Item : Temperature
Date : 03/01/2009
Value: 19.40


The user can import this data from Excel.



I would like to add flexibility so that, instead of forcing the user to create a spreadsheet in my format, the user can easily get the data from other applications.

Should I be looking at XML for this? Or something else?

Here is the structure of the two tables:



The parent table has a list of names (e.g. Temperature, Weight, Height).
The child table has a list of values for each measure (e.g. Temperature taken every month).
I have never used XML before. Can you give me some ideas on how to do this?
