XML Export of related elements – nesting problem - SOLVED

Hi! I’ve come across a problem concerning the XML Export of related elements (entities, places, occurences).

For instance, I need to export related places with their geoname ID. It’s working using the attached mapping (see row 44-46). The output I get is:


Now the place that will get our data needs the XML be formatted like this, with no nesting inside XML Tags (so,  <abgebildeter_ort_name> needs to be closed before <abgebildeter_ort_geoname-id> starts):


Any help on how to archive this would be great! Thanks


  • manged to get it working – here is what I did for abgelbildete_orte for example (added a blank tag abgebildeter_ort)
