How do I access XML data in a microflow?

I have set up a microflow to make a REST call to an XML web service. I've set up an import mapping and linked this to a series of data views on a web page so I can see the data coming back. What I'm struggling with is accessing the data in the microflow. I want to be able to extract individual elements, or collections of elements and pass them into variables or objects. I've tried using the retrieve by association activity but the objects those are creating are empty. Working with XML seems really counter - intuitive in Mendix. Can anyone point me to any better tutorials than just the standard documentation?

You should add an Export with mapping activity, select your mapping, your export parameter, and choose to Output in a string variable. From there you will have the XML you need for whichever object you've don this activity for.
