    <elementString id="Element Number1">USER_1</elementString>
    <elementString id="Element Number2">USER_2</elementString>
    <elementNumber id="Element Date1">0.0</elementNumber>

    The input to your Add XML column step (ElementFields) must look like this:

    name id value
    elementDate Element Date1 2018-02-27
    elementDate Element Date2 2018-02-28
    elementName Element Name1 USER_1
    elementName Element Name2 USER_2
    elementNumber Element Number1 0.0
    elementNumber Element Number2 0.1

    So your first task would be to design a transformation producing the necessary data format.
    You will hurt yourself a lot with your data design, though - both, CSV and XML.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
