We have been using the XML Data Source to generate our reports however we finally ran into an issue where we've been unable to find an example or explanation online as to how to solve it. In the word document in section 5.5 you have an example of a geography nested dataset but it is just showing an example of how to get all locations. We are trying to display something like the below xml in a report where each Parents information is displayed and each of their children's information below each parent. In the Parent Dataset if we add the child name and age element when displayed it only displays the first child and it displays the same child for every parent. If we make a new child dataset and attempt to display that it correctly displays all of the children for the first parent but again displays those same children for all the other parents. I've even tried a joined dataset but have been unable to get any child information to display when using it. Could you provide an example of the datasets and column mappings to correctly display the parent with each of their corresponding children. In our report we are using a list to display the parents data and a table to display the children below each parent.

<People>
	<parent>
		<name>Joe</name>
		<age>31</age>
		<child>
			<name>Mike</name>
			<age>4</age>
		</child>
		<child>
			<name>Jessica</name>
			<age>3</age>
		</child>
	</parent>
	<parent>
		<name>Josh</name>
		<age>31</age>
		<child>
			<name>Greg</name>
			<age>5</age>
		</child>
		<child>
			<name>Amber</name>
			<age>6</age>
		</child>
	</parent>
