I have a formating issue
My problem is this WeatherCond0 = objXML.selectsingleNode("/dwml/data/parameters/weather time-layout/weather-conditions weather-summary[0]")

The above obj Fail with this error msxml3.dll (0x80004005)
Expected token 'eof' found 'NAME'. /dwml/data/parameters/weather -->time-layout<--/weather-conditions weather-summary[0]
/braincell/PFForcaster.asp, line 14

it seems spaces are the issue but I’m not sure

this is what I need <weather-conditions weather-summary="Partly Cloudy" />

This is my XML source: http://www.weather.gov/forecasts/xml/SOAP_server/ndfdSOAPclientByDay.php?lat=47.4828776&lon=-122.2170661&format=24+hourly&startDate=2007-03-26&numDays=3&Submit=Submit/

This is the xml node structure: you can see this in the above link at NOAA
- <weather time-layout="k-p24h-n3-1">
  <name>Weather Type, Coverage, and Intensity</name>
  <weather-conditions weather-summary="Partly Cloudy" />
- <weather-conditions weather-summary="Rain Showers">
  <value coverage="isolated" intensity="none" weather-type="thunderstorms" qualifier="none" />
  <value coverage="isolated" intensity="light" additive="and" weather-type="rain showers" qualifier="none" />
  </weather-conditions>
- <weather-conditions weather-summary="Chance Rain Showers">
  <value coverage="chance" intensity="light" weather-type="rain showers" qualifier="none" />
  </weather-conditions>
  </weather>

should be:  objXML.selectsingleNode("/dwml/data/parameters/weather/weather-conditions[0]")
Both time-layout and weather-summary are attributes

Than it looks like you need to allow for more than one node with that attribute. Like now:

<weather time-layout="k-p24h-n3-1">
      <name>Weather Type, Coverage, and Intensity</name>
      <weather-conditions weather-summary="Partly Cloudy" />
      <weather-conditions weather-summary="Partly Cloudy" />
      <weather-conditions weather-summary="Rain Likely">
            <value coverage="likely" intensity="light" weather-type="rain" qualifier="none" />
      </weather-conditions>
</weather>

This XPath will give you all the nodes with that value:
/dwml/data/parameters/weather/weather-conditions[@weather-summary='Partly Cloudy']

Please see this link : http://www.weather.gov/forecasts/xml/SOAP_server/ndfdSOAPclientByDay.php?lat=47.4828776&lon=-122.2170661&format=24+hourly&startDate=2007-03-26&numDays=4&Submit=Submit

I tried WeatherCond0 = objXML.selectsingleNode("/dwml/data/parameters/weather/weather-conditions[0]").text
but return no value with no error other dat is flowing fine just this node returns nuthing

any Ideas

I think I’m being confusing here let me try again :

I have this XML : http://www.weather.gov/forecasts/xml/SOAP_server/ndfdSOAPclientByDay.php?lat=47.4828776&lon=-122.2170661&format=24+hourly&startDate=2007-03-26&numDays=4&Submit=Submit

Here is the xml
   <?xml version="1.0" ?>
- <dwml version="1.0" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="http://www.nws.noaa.gov/forecasts/xml/DWMLgen/schema/DWML.xsd">
+ <head>
- <data>
+ <location>
+ <time-layout time-coordinate="local" summarization="24hourly">
+ <time-layout time-coordinate="local" summarization="12hourly">
- <parameters applicable-location="point1">
+ <temperature type="maximum" units="Fahrenheit" time-layout="k-p24h-n4-1">
+ <temperature type="minimum" units="Fahrenheit" time-layout="k-p24h-n4-1">
+ <probability-of-precipitation type="12 hour" units="percent" time-layout="k-p12h-n8-2">
- <weather time-layout="k-p24h-n4-1">
  <name>Weather Type, Coverage, and Intensity</name>
  <weather-conditions weather-summary="Partly Cloudy" />
  <weather-conditions weather-summary="Partly Cloudy" />
- <weather-conditions weather-summary="Rain Likely">
  <value coverage="likely" intensity="light" weather-type="rain" qualifier="none" />
  </weather-conditions>
- <weather-conditions weather-summary="Rain Likely">
  <value coverage="likely" intensity="light" weather-type="rain" qualifier="none" />
  </weather-conditions>
  </weather>
+ <conditions-icon type="forecast-NWS" time-layout="k-p24h-n4-1">
  </parameters>
  </data>
  </dwml>

I need to parse the info in these nodes into my app
<weather-conditions weather-summary="Partly Cloudy" />
<weather-conditions weather-summary="Partly Cloudy" />
<weather-conditions weather-summary="Rain Likely">
<weather-conditions weather-summary="Rain Likely">

Right now this returns nothing with no error what am I doing wrong here
WeatherCond0 = objXML.selectsingleNode("/dwml/data/parameters/weather/weather-conditions/value[0]")

can you try this:
WeatherCond0 = objXML.selectsingleNode("//dwml/data/parameters/weather/weather-conditions[position()=1]")

I think that is correct because there is no  text data under weather-conditions[0] in xml file.
You can test it again after you modify your xml to:
<weather-conditions weather-summary="Partly Cloudy"> Whatvere it is here </weather-conditions>

Not sure. I am a Java guy :)   I think it should be one of them:

selectsingleNode("/dwml/data/parameters/weather/weather-conditions[0]").Attributes(0).Text
OR
selectsingleNode("/dwml/data/parameters/weather/weather-conditions[0]").Attributes.item(0).Text

Found a safe way to get it:

objXML.selectsingleNode("/dwml/data/parameters/weather/weather-conditions[0]").Attributes.getNamedItem("weather-summary").nodeValue

Thank you for rewards.  I am just lucky for getting it work.  If it was Java code, I can do it much better.  :)
