back from break, bumping this one to see if there is not a fix or workaround.
API docs claim optional (although optional for all other formats other than XML?):
root_element string (optional, only used when format is xml) The name to give to the root element in the document
record_element string (optional, only used when format is xml) The name to give to each element representing a record
If I call the API without the parameters it adds and elements by default. Again, would like to have the tool ignore these if possible.
