    .XSV extension is is the official reference implementation for the XML Schema language so, in order to create an invoice with XML format you need to "transform" the data into that format.

    One option fully integrated with SAP is by sending an IDOC to PI and there the IDOC is mapped into XML fields.

    If you are not using PI or XI maybe you will need a third party provider.

    Hi,

    .XSV format is like MS Excel output, the file will open in MS Excel.

    And your requirement can be achieved with the help of ABAPer. ABAPer needs to convert OTF file to .XSV file in print program.

    Give you requirement to ABAP consultant and ask them to modify print program for invoice output.
