XML is this...
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
               xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
               xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
               xmlns:wsa="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2004/08/addressing">
  <soap:Header>
    <MyHeader xmlns="http://v1x1.identityheader.wbxml.ts.xx.net/">
      <SenderID>X434150</SenderID>
    </MyHeader>
    <MyRequestHeader xmlns="http://v1x1.requestheader.wbxml.ts.xx.net/">
      <SendingTimeStamp>2010-08-18T10:36:59.6925796-04:00</SendingTimeStamp>      
    </MyRequestHeader>
    <wsa:Action>AddCustomer</wsa:Action>
  </soap:Header>
  <soap:Body>
    <AddCustomerRequest xmlns="http://v1x5.addcustomer.message.retail.xx.net/">
    </AddCustomerRequest>
  </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>


I need to select the SenderID, SendingTimeStamp and wsa:Action.

I have tried...

select extractvalue(xmltype('<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
               xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
               xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
               xmlns:wsa="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2004/08/addressing">
  <soap:Header>
    <MyHeader xmlns="http://v1x1.identityheader.wbxml.ts.xx.net/">
      <SenderID>X434150</SenderID>
    </MyHeader>
    <MyRequestHeader xmlns="http://v1x1.requestheader.wbxml.ts.xx.net/">
      <SendingTimeStamp>2010-08-18T10:36:59.6925796-04:00</SendingTimeStamp>      
    </MyRequestHeader>
    <wsa:Action>AddCustomer</wsa:Action>
  </soap:Header>
  <soap:Body>
    <AddCustomerRequest xmlns="http://v1x5.addcustomer.message.retail.xx.net/">
    </AddCustomerRequest>
  </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>'),'//Envelope/Header/MyRequestHeader/SendingTimeStamp') a from dual

but this returns null...

Thanks for your help...

you need to include the namespaces in your extraction
SELECT EXTRACTVALUE(
           xml,
           '//SenderID',
