hi EE,
I have the following XML that I need to read through using XPATH.

The C# below allows me to read through the XML to get all the ID nodes out into my List.

I now need to grab the corresponding 'test' node.

My approach fails, see the commented out lines.

I need to modify the code so that I can access the following:

    id = qwerty
    test = here

    id = qwerty2
    test = here2

Please can I have some help here as I'm completely stuck how to get around this?!!

Many thanks!
a loop
            XmlDocument xmldoc = new XmlDocument();

            XmlNodeList nodeList = xmldoc.SelectNodes("/a:feed/a:entry/a:id", nsMgr);
            string test = (XmlNode)updatedNode.InnerText.ToString();
            foreach (XmlNode Xnode in nodeList)
                  myList.Add(Xnode.InnerText);  // save ID node into List
                  //XmlNodeList testNode =xmldoc.SelectNodes("/a:feed/a:entry/a:test", nsMgr);
