ADD THE MAP
Drag the ns1:EmployeeName element from the XML Source task pane to cell B1, and then drag the ns1:Department element to cell D1.
Drag the ns1:ManagerName element to cell B3, and then drag the ns1:Date element to cell D3.

Still under ns1:ExpenseItem: Drag the ns1:Account element to cell C5, drag ns1:Date to cell D5, and then drag ns1:Total to cell E5.
