Hi,
How do I get this to work?

.pricew4wd = (From p In q...<price> _
                  Where (p.@vehicle = "yes") _
                  Select (pricew4wd = p.Value.FirstOrDefault(), _      
                  FormatNumber(pricew4wd, 2)), _

I am getting a syntax error.

Thanks
Tania

Is this Linq to XML? If so can you post the XML and the full query that you are using so that we can determin where the syntax error is. If it is NOT Linq to XML can you give more details.

Something like this should work but without seeing the whole query and code around it, it is hard to tell.

pricew4wd = (From p In q...<price> _
                        Where p.@vehicle = "yes" _
                        Select pricew4wd = p.Value).FirstOrDefault()
                   
Dim numFormatted As Single = FormatNumber(pricew4wd, 2))

Hi,
Thanks - sorry missed your reply.

<product code="lr" title="4wd Bush Driving">
      <duration>1 Day</duration>
      <visible>true</visible>
      <prices>
        <price vehicle="yes" >245</price>
        <price vehicle="no">180</price>
      </prices>
</product>

I got this working - is it ok to use structurally?

Select pricewo4wd = Formatnumber(p.Value,2)).FirstOrDefault(), _

From what you are showing of the statement that should be fine as well.
