Keep ID in Extract Structured Data output objects + combine in one ExampleSet in Object Collectio

I have tried many different threads to solve what seems like it should be simple - ( / seeming close)

The basic problem is that no matter how I configure it (unfolding/not unfolding), the result is a IOObjectcollection with discrete Example sets, and the original data as annotations.

My goal is simply to append the columns resulting from Extract structured data to it.  Any help would be appreciated!

My XML is below:

    Hi @damon_kost,

    I have difficulties to understand what you want to achieve.
    Can you provide a sample of what you have initially and what you want to obtain.

    Hi @lionelderkrikor

    Sorry if I wasn't clear...

    I have an Excel sheet with IDs in one column, and URLs in another (see attached).  I am trying to extract specific items from each URL in the pages, which are structure, and append them onto the original list of IDs and URLs as additional columns.  Ideally I would like to export this as one excel/csv file.

    Let me know if this makes sense....
