nested xml export

Question asked by rremde on Dec 14, 2016

I am returning to FMP after a 20 year absence, and I'm trying to figure out if Filemaker can do what we need to do.

 

We are a film company, and produce streaming film channels.  We need to produce MRSS (media RSS feeds) that match the format below.  The regular .xml is pretty straightforward, but I'm not sure how to replicate the nested data - is this something we can create from FMP.  If anyone can point me in the appropriate direction, I'd be grateful.
