How to spit out Output Field Map into Excel



I am using the Output Tool to dump manipulated values into an Excel template pre-populated with column headers. I used the "Append Field Map" for Custom Mapping of input fields > output template fields.


Is there a way to spit out the Source & Destination Custom Mappings? I'd like to export the mappings to Excel for QC purposes.

This post seems relevant to what you're trying to do.


Basically every YXMD is an XML document. you should be able to parse out the mappings from the XML directly.
