I am very new to the XML arena and I am trying to figure out how to perform a certain task.  Any help is greatly apppreciated.  Here is the scenario.  I have an XML file and I have loaded it inside the DOM (javascript).  I would like to be able to loop through the DOM inside javascript and get certain attribute values.  This is what the xml looks like:

<data>
   <a fname='Joe' lname='Duke' email='joe@home.com'>
<b division='firstdivision'/>
<b division='seconddivision'/>
   </a>
   <a fname='Bob' lname='Smith' email='bob@home.com'>
<b division='thirddivision'/>
<b division='fourthdivision'/>
   </a>
</data>

I can currently get the first divsion by referencing the following:

myXML.selectSingleNode("Data/a/b/@division").text;

I would like to be able to loop through the DOM and grab all divisions from each element.  It doesn't matter how many divisions occur for each element.  The ultimate goal here is to check a checkbox or checkboxes for that particular division or divisions from the selected person(which will be fired from an onchange event for a drop down list).

If more information is required, please let me know.  Thanks in advance for the help.

Alright I think I knwo what you're after.  Take a look at the code sample below and let me know if this is it.

<script language="javascript">


 // Load XML
 var xml = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
 xml.async = false
 xml.load("ee.xml")

 var allBs //this will be a collection of all the b tags
 var currDivision
 
 allBs = xml.getElementsByTagName("b")
 
 //Now we will loop through all of the divsions
 for(i=0;i<allBs.length;i++)
 {
      currDivision = allBs.item(i).attributes.getNamedItem("division").nodeValue
     alert(currDivision )
 }


</script>
