Help with Extract of Mapping Component Documentation

We've just installed a Full (Trial) Version of Talend DI - we need to check how or whether it is possible to extract mapping component documentation.
The View Documentation / Generate Doc as HTML menu options allow full project / component documentation to be generated, BUT this documentation does not appear to contain the specific output from the Mapping Components, i.e. which Input fields map to which Output fields in the tMap components. While all the rest of the output documentation has its uses, what we really need is to extract and report just the field mappings.
Can somebody please advise whether there is a method to extract these mapping details?

Hi,
what we really need is to extract and report just the field mappings.

Could you please set an example for your job requirement? 
Best regards

Re: Help with Extract of Mapping Component Documentation

Thanks for replying Sabrina
I've attached a screen print of the mapping details from one of our typical tMap components, showing the relatiosnhips between source and target fields.
What we'd like to do is extract / report these details in a less-graphical format that can be easily shared with other project stakeholders, for example in some kind of tabulated text format.
Does this kind of reporting capability exist, or would we have to take screen prints of the tMap components (like the attached) to share these details with other project stakeholders?

Adding a little more detail / clarity to clarify this query.
Does any method / feature / function / capability exist to extract the Mapping details from a tMap component, into a more readable structured format, such as (or equivalent to) Excel?
While we can use the "Generate Doc as HTML" function to extract the details of the entire Job, and this resulting documentation does then include the full details of each tMap component (in both HTML and XML formats), this documentation is NOT appropriate for sharing with other members of the project team, as it is much too complex and difficult to interpret, and anyway cannot easily be isolated from all of the other content for all the rest of the Job components.
What we would like instead, is to be able to run a simple process that extracts only the Mapping details from the tMap component (Source and Target tables and fields, Joins, Filters, etc), and output these details to something like Excel format.
Does any such capability exist please?
