If you are using databinding, it depends on how the xml is formed. Can you show me an example of that xml?

hi negatyve,
  here is the structure of the xml.  i want only the news_date value to appear in the list.  thanks.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<article >
      <entry news_date="2004-12-20" news_text="This is the temporary holding text."/>
      <entry news_date="2004-12-21" news_text="This is the temporary holding text2."/>

Please, select the list component, open the "Component Parameters" panel and look for the binding settings..

hi negatyve,
  unfortuantely that is exactly how i have it set up, yet i am still seeing the 'news_date, news_text" values displayed in my list.  i'm rather baffled at this point.
