|4.||Choose XML data fields as the 'Format'. To set further options click XML field options...: see Outputting to XML.|

|•||To set up a new selection of fields, click Select... to display the 'Field Definitions' window. Right click on a field name in the Fields list and choose Select for Export. Repeat for other fields you wish to export; you may select Unselect for export if you decide not to export a selected field.

If you are exporting to an image or other format, the fields can be extracted simultaneously into XML. In this case the file is not given the extension XML, but a .LOG file is created instead.
