How do I parse XML in VB - part 2

I am trying to parse xml data that is in an Access database. When I run this code, I get the same "value" of 10 twice but it should be 10 then 5.

Sub ParseXML(pstrXML As String)
   
    Dim xmlDoc As New MSXML2.DOMDocument
    Dim xmlNode As MSXML2.IXMLDOMElement
       
    Dim iPos As Long
    Dim sOperations(0 To 1) As String
    sOperations(0) = "NumberOfFiles"
    sOperations(1) = "NumberOfFolders"
   
    xmlDoc.loadXML sXML
    For iPos = LBound(sOperations) To UBound(sOperations)
          op = sOperations(iPos)
 
          For Each xmlNode In xmlDoc.childNodes(0).childNodes
             If xmlNode.nodeName = "operations" Then
                For Each xmlchild In xmlDoc.selectNodes("//reportElement [@reportCode='" & op & "']")
                    Debug.Print xmlchild.getAttribute("reportCode") & ": " & xmlchild.selectSingleNode("//value").Text
               Next
             End If
          Next xmlNode

     Next iPos
 
End Sub
-----------------------------------------------
Sample XML:

        "<operations><operation> " & _
        "<report> " & _
        "<reportElementList> " & _
        "<reportElement type='Info' reportCode='NumberOfFiles' dateTime='12/9/2010 8:06:21 PM'> " & _
        "<reportDataList> " & _
        "<reportData key='Amount'> " & _
        "<value>10</value> " & _
        "</reportData> " & _
        "</reportDataList> " & _
        "</reportElement> " & _
        "<reportElement type='Info' reportCode='NumberOfFolders' dateTime='12/9/2010 8:06:21 PM'> " & _
        "<reportDataList> " & _
        "<reportData key='Amount'> " & _
        "<value>5</value> " & _
        "</reportData> " & _
        "</reportDataList> " & _
        "</reportElement> " & _
        "</reportElementList> " & _
        "</report></operation> " & _
        "</operations></operation>"
------------------------------------------

Desired Results:
NumberOfFiles: 10
NumberOfFolders: 5

Erroneous Results I'm getting::
NumberOfFiles: 10
NumberOfFolders: 10


Thanks!

This:
xmlchild.selectSingleNode("//value").Text

Open in new window

Should say:
xmlchild.selectSingleNode(".//value").Text

Open in new window

The // says "search anywhere from the root of the document. Putting the dot in front says "search anywhere below the context node. Of course, it would process faster is you used the more explicit:
xmlchild.selectSingleNode("reportDataList/reportData/value").Text

Open in new window
