eg. my xml import has <term>this</term> - but only provides this tag once (because that's the way excel works). My indesign doc has <term> written 4 times and I want that one xml import entry to replace them all without having to repeat it for every time it appears in my doc structure.
When I do this import why is it only replacing my 'term' the first time?
