Thanks for this really quick answer !!!!! Impressive !!!

I think i explained it wrong. I try it again: :)

Every FCE contains:
1. 1 - 4 "Content Element"-Fields
2. 3 select boxes with the effects settings

The 30 FCEs use all different "Content Element"-Fields!
But the Effects are always the same.
So on the end i need different TO and DS because of (1).

But what i try to do, is that i have a global effects DS.
So if I need to change a effect it will be done in all
FCEs!!! Right now i have to go over all FCEs by hand and
change the XML source. That is really quite unhandy :)
And takes quite long .....

Something like this, would be grate .... <include = efx.xml />
