I'm tryiing to import a list of people into a system that requires xml in a specific format.

I cant seem to wrap my head around how this works in Automate - i can't even seem to create a simple child node. And yes, i've even brushed up on my xpath at W3.

I've attached a very simplified version of the three steps required:
1. Create a new xml instance, with a root node.
2. Create a child node under the root.
3. End session and save the xml file.

At step 2, i get error message Invalid XPath expression: Expression must evaluate to a node-set.

What am i doing wrong?
