I can see the custom_object_read but the results fromt he XOG has 578,612 lines and I know a lot of it isn't what I need, is there a way to Trim it so it's just the Object/Attributes that I'm working on?
Have you sepcified the custom object that you want to read in the input XML?
<Filter name="object_code" criteria="EQUALS">shoe</Filter>
Also if your custom object is a sub-object of a real object (eg "project") then I've always found that I get all the details of the real object (including any other sub-objects, custom or not) when I do the XOG read.
I usually then edit the "junk" I don't need out from the XML in a text editor (Notepad++ makes the job relatively easy since it groups together the XML tags etc).
I am specifying the details, but as you also say, it's a sub object of the Project Object, I was just trying to avoid deleting 90% of the XOG out since I'm only moving this object from one environment to another along the development process of the object.
