XML data into comma seperated string

I call a web service and get following XML (see code).

I need to know how do I convert the data into:

7369, 8834

In other words, If I get results, I need to convert result into comma separated string so that I can pass it to query string in URL



- <NewDataSet>
- <Table>
  <ext_user_id>7369</ext_user_id> 
  </Table>
- <Table>
  <ext_user_id>8834</ext_user_id> 
  </Table>
  </NewDataSet>

Something like this?
System.Xml.XmlDocument doc = new System.Xml.XmlDocument();
        doc.LoadXml("<NewDataSet><Table><ext_user_id>7369</ext_user_id></Table><Table><ext_user_id>8834</ext_user_id></Table></NewDataSet>");
        System.Xml.XmlNodeList nodeList = doc.GetElementsByTagName("Table");
 
        string values = "";
 
        foreach (System.Xml.XmlNode tableNode in nodeList)
        {
            System.Xml.XmlNode numNode = tableNode.SelectSingleNode("ext_user_id");
            values = numNode.InnerText + ",";
        }
        values += values.Substring(0, values.Length - 1);

Thanks for your reply. When I call web service  I don't know if I get 10 ids, 100 ids or nothing.

So I can not  hard code the XML.

Also is there way that we can use split() function?

I was only hardcoding the xml for demonstration purposes, all you need to do is put the string returned by the webservice into it. This method will work for 10 or 100 nodes in an xml string.
Why would you want to use split, the XmlDocument class is there for a reason, lol
