XML SelectSingleNode

I am trying to extract all child nodes in an XML document with a certain name, using the SOAP toolkit.
At the moment I cannot extract anything further down than the root, I need to find nodes in the body of the XML.
My XML document uses a bespoke namespace, so I am using this syntax:
Set objNode = oRoot.selectSingleNode("testNS:Results")
Where Results is the root node. This works and I get a node back.

But I am looking 5 levels down into the XML for what I really want.
When I try this (retrieve a node below the root ):

Set objNode = oRoot.selectSingleNode("testNS:Results/Level2")

I get nothing.

What am I doing wrong?

If you want to return all nodes of with a certain name you should use SelectNodes(xpath).  SelectSingleNode give you just the one node and its children instead of all nodes of that name and their children.

dan_neal has a point about using selectNodes to get the entire set,
but there is more, you need to change the XPath too,
now your XPath only looks at the top level
In order for XPath to dig deeper in the tree, you will need a "//" denoting that you need that patteren anywhere in the tree

Set objNodes = oRoot.selectNodes("//Level2")
make sure you have the namespace right
