After placing the records you whish to see in the XML Report (for additional information how to place records in the ‘Selected Records’ Queue, see -Metadata Utility – placing Record(s) in the ‘Selected Records’ Queue).
To access the ‘XML’ Report do the following:
-From Metadata Utility’s Main Switchboard,
-click on ‘Reports Switchboard’
-click on ‘Metadata Utility Reports Switchboard’
-click on ‘XML’ – will show you a pre-view of how the ‘XML’ File will look like.

To ‘Select’ a record, you can:
-click on the ‘Select’ Button on any given record, or
-enter a ‘-1’ (without the double quotes) in the ‘Chk’ field (while in ‘Edit’ or ‘Unlocked’ Mode on any given record)
the ‘Select’ Button on any given record is always clickable, regardless whether a record is locked or not.
