I'm trying to cobble together an xpath that will return all rows
below a certain point in the table.

I want all nodes below where this hits.
.//*[@id='DDATransactionTable']/tbody/tr[contains(.,'Posted T')]

Open in new window


Ideas?
Thanks,
-JW

If you want all child nodes just do
.//*[@id='DDATransactionTable']/tbody/tr[contains(.,'Posted T')]/node()

If you want all nodes below that point
.//*[@id='DDATransactionTable']/tbody/tr[contains(.,'Posted T')]//node()

first one is just child nodes, second one has a double "//" so it looks to nodes at any depth
