XML export issue

This is a pretty specific XML question.

 

I'm exporting an XML file from FMA 11. No stylesheet being used at this point. I'm then using the XML file in Stylus Studio to create a stylesheet for exporting later from FM. The file is 90% flat with only a few fields coming from related tables. They are always a single entry. Everything is a 1:1 relationship.

 

Everything is going along fine. I get to a point where if I add 1 additional field to the export suddenly the XML file contains an extra ROW tag. The second ROW element is a near duplication of the first. The data for the extra field only appears in the SECOND row element, not the first. If I remove the field, the second ROW goes away.

 

In Stylus Studio there is a mapper tool where I can draw links between source and destination. This creates the stylesheet for me.

 

In the source side the second ROW element never appears in the mapper window. If I look at the raw source file I can see it, but not map it.

 

Questions...

Why is FM suddenly creating the second ROW element in the raw XML export?

Any suggestions as to how to fix this?
