However, Sage ERP X3 has a functionality of creating Import/Export template in XML format which can be done manually after following some simple navigation. However, if you need a duplicate XML tag in the export template, Sage ERP X3 doesn’t allow this using standard template.
However, this can be easily done using code.

Step1. First of all, you need to declare Clbfile variable. This declaration is important for storing data in variable.
