Private Shared xmlDoc As XmlDocument          
 xmlDoc = New XmlDocument
            xmlDoc.Load(FilePath)

 For Each EnumDll In xmlDoc.ChildNodes.Item(1).ChildNodes 'root node

     For Each xmlNodeitem As XmlNode In EnumDll.ChildNodes 'child Nodes
          Label1.Text = CType(xmlNodeitem.ChildNodes.Item(2).InnerText, String)
     Next'child node

Next


try above code

RamanaChoudary:
How would I reference a dataset?

I have the data in a dataset which I've been parsing out with hard coded node lists...which I absolutely do not want to do...

Please see the code AND the actual XML below


------Dataset Code That has been getting "node list" for different repeaters-------
blah...blah...blah...
Session("response").WriteXml(xmlTextWriter, XmlWriteMode.IgnoreSchema)
 
        ' Write the Xml out to a string   
        Dim contentAsXmlString As String = stringWriter.ToString()
 
        ' load the string of Xml into the document   
        xmlDocument.LoadXml(contentAsXmlString)
 
        ' parse out the session token 
        Dim _response As XmlNodeList = xmlDocument.SelectNodes("//responseEnvelope/responseHeader/statusData")
        Dim _response2 As XmlNodeList = xmlDocument.SelectNodes("//responseEnvelope/ReservationResponse/ReservationToken")
 
        Dim _response3 As XmlNodeList = xmlDocument.SelectNodes("//responseEnvelope/ReservationResponse")
Dim _response2 As XmlNodeList = xmlDocument.SelectNodes("//responseEnvelope/ReservationResponse/ReservationToken")
 
        Dim _response3 As XmlNodeList = xmlDocument.SelectNodes("//responseEnvelope/ReservationResponse")
 
 
 
        hdr.DataSource = _response
        hdr.DataBind()
 
        hdr2.DataSource = _response2
        hdr2.DataBind()
 
        hdr3.DataSource = _response3
        hdr3.DataBind()
 
 
---ACTUAL DATA------
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<responseEnvelope>
    <responseHeader>
        <statusData>
            <completionCode>0</completionCode>
            <completionMessage>Request Completed Successfully.</completionMessage>
        </statusData>
    </responseHeader>
    <ReservationResponse>
        <ReservationToken>
            <inventoryType>1</inventoryType>
            <referenceNumber>73510000113587001</referenceNumber>
            <unitNumber>1856</unitNumber>
        </ReservationToken>
        <status>C</status>
    </ReservationResponse>
</responseEnvelope>

So first you are writing data from dataset to xml and then you want to use that xml to populate labels or repeater? Why not use the dataset directly?

lblTest.Text = dSet.Tables(0).Rows(0).item("Name")

The data is coming back from a reote form post as XML
I can't write these to files...
I'm passing the data to a processing form as a Session("response") and then placing that as a dataset

I'll try what you placed there.

If you look at my XML Data above...you'll see that your reply is looking at the top tier...
How do I point it to other "levels"

Column 'referenceNumber' does not belong to table responseHeader.

Code Cruiser put me close to what I needed....channa_m: was helpful as well.

Final solution to access the child information was...
lblData.Text = dSet.Tables("ReservationToken").Rows(0).Item("referenceNumber").ToString
