    Hello, I'm very new to the game here, any help would be greatly appreciated. I am generating a quiz using a platform on Xcode. With roughly 7,000 questions that I have pre-generated in excel format I am trying to find a script which can convert my simple excel spreadsheet into appropriate plist. My spreadsheet is as simple as column A for the question, then column B,C,D,E for each question. Each row would then be a new question. Here's what I'm looking to have the plist turn out as: https://imgur.com/CMUFJ8Y
    If anyone could point me in the general direction of how to figure this out I'd be so grateful!

    Hello and welcome.

    This is far above my experience and knowledge level.

    -Are you looking for some form of AppleScript/Automator workflow to extract the answers from the Excel document?
    -Are you actually writing code for an application in Xcode to perform this?
    -Does the final output need to be a plist, which is usually a Mac application preference file?
