RESOLVED - Image file path in XML Export

edited November 2017 in Troubleshooting
Greetings -
I'm building a mapping to export information to an image-processing application and would like to include the title, the size, and a path to the image.  I've figured out the title & size, but can't see how to export the file-path, Is this possible?
thanks very much,

    Sorry, I made some progress and realize I've left off some helpful information:
    Running CollectiveAccess 1.6.1 on Linux 2.6.32

    My mapping is as follows:
    Rule type ID Parent ID Element Source
    Mapping   1   object
    Mapping   2   1   @idno ca_objects.idno
    Mapping   3   1   title ca_objects.preferred_labels
    Mapping   4   1   width ca_objects.work_dimensions.dimensions_width
    Mapping   5   1   path
    Mapping   6   1   label ca_object_representations.preferred_labels
    Mapping   7   1   status ca_object_representations.status

    With that I am getting some valid XML (see below).  The only thing I'd like to see differently is the path to the original, full-size file instead of the icon.  Is that possible?

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <object idno="WST_506-08">
      <title>Weston Model 506 DC Miliammeter</title>
      <width>2.3120 in</width>

    table { }td { padding-top: 1px; padding-right: 1px; padding-left: 1px; color: windowtext; font-size: 10pt; font-weight: 400; font-style: normal; text-decoration: none; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; vertical-align: bottom; border: medium none; white-space: nowrap; }.xl63 { color: black; font-size: 12pt; font-weight: 700; font-family: Arial; text-align: left; vertical-align: top; }.xl64 { font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: top; }

    there it is!  well, I've solved my own problem, hopefully this will help someone else.
    thanks for watching...
