[BioC] question about biomaRt attributes

Thanks Amanda for your response.
I guess I was not clear in my post. I did put the new attributes from
listAttributes() in my code (I listed both my old code and my new code
so it was clear what I had done and now what I was trying to do). I'm
just not sure if I'm using the new attribute names correctly.
Previously I had to use special 'Structure' attributes to get the gene
id, chromosome, etc. pulled down along with the transcript and exon
information (or at least I thought I did). Now those attributes no
longer exist. My new code assumes that now it just has a single
identifier and there's no problem using the same 'ensembl_gene_id'
attribute regardless of the category of other attributes are being
pulled down with it. But I would like to know that this is correct
because I am not comfortable with what these things mean and I don't
want to have a hidden error somewhere.
Thanks a lot,
