Hi Michael

this is exactly my problem. The XML file has no namespace and the output has a namespace. 

Fist I tried

	declare namespace null=“”;

and in the query I wrote something like


Then I get the error that namespace null is not declared….

The only solution I found is to put a namespace in the XML file (which is not really what I want). 

Is there another way?
