I 'm not sure the fields of you listed where i can find them, please pointing out which field corresponds to which content in page.

Then you need to create multiple content elements which have same XPath to that description, then making content transformation for each content lement, then picking specific content.

Please see the attached demo project and sample data in XML format(can be opened in Excel).

The Jeep Laredo Summary. jpg data is ultimately extracted to the excel file attached (Jeep Laredo Data.xls). Not sure if I need go to the detailed page to get that data (Jeep Laredo Detailed.jpg) Was hoping to just get it from the summary paragraph.
