In Classic ASP I have an XML document loaded into a session variable session("ArrayOfInformation")
I have available to me the PartnerUid.
I need to find out:
1- Is there a node in the XML where the PartnerUid is what I am looking for
2- If there is such a node, I need the DsiplayName and the DirectoryName

If someone can point me to the appropriate XPATH so that I can run selectSingleNode on the "Information" node that contains the child node I am looking for, I can get to the two values I am looking for.

<ArrayOfInformation>

  <Information>

    <PartnerId>12345</PartnerId>

    <Description>Description Here</Description>

    <DirectoryName>Directory Name Here</DirectoryName>

    <PartnerUid>54321</PartnerUid>

    <DisplayName>Display Name Here</DisplayName>

  </Information>

  <Information>

    <PartnerId>67890</PartnerId>

    <Description>Description Here</Description>

    <DirectoryName>Directory Name Here</DirectoryName>

    <PartnerUid>098765</PartnerUid>

    <DisplayName>Display Name Here</DisplayName>

  </Information>

</ArrayOfInformation>

infoNode = xmldoc.selectSingleNode('/ArrayOfInformation/Information[PartnerId="1234"]');

If infoNode is nothing, then not found. Otherwise you've got the info node.

Note you can make up the selection string yourself, dynamically, but please not the usage of different quotes!

The other two data are :-

     infoNode.selectSingleNode('DisplayName').text;

and

   infoNode.selectSingleNode('DirectoryName').text;

I went the XPATH route

objXML.selectSingleNode("//ArrayOfInformation[PartnerUid='" & PartnerUID & "']")
