Hello,

I have an XML file which I'm trying to parse.  I get most of the data with no issues, but there is a sub array for images, which has 3 nodes, but my code isn't seperating the nodes, so I'm getting all the data in one long string - I need it seperated so I can add it to my DB...

The first part of the XML file is:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<result>
<HouseCode>AT-1010-04</HouseCode>
<Updated>2013-01-06T10:55:59-08:00</Updated>

    </element>
  </Brands>
</BasicInformationV3>
<MediaV1>
  <Photos>
    <Photo>
      <Tag>ExteriorSummer</Tag>
      <Height>500</Height>
      <URL>media.leisure-ict.net/photo/web/500/83583_lsr_20101213106909640392.jpg</URL>
    </Photo>
    <Photo>
      <Tag>ExteriorSummer</Tag>
      <Height>500</Height>
      <URL>media.leisure-ict.net/photo/web/500/83583_lsr_2010110252638872804.jpg</URL>
    </Photo>

Open in new window


and my code,which is within another array (of all the properties) is:
set images_list = itemAttrib.SelectNodes("MediaV1/*[starts-with(name(),'Photo')]")
    For Each i In images_list
	z = z + 1
    image = i.text
    	if image <> "" then
	imagename = right(image, (len(image) - len("http://media.leisure-ict.net/photo/web/")))
	response.Write(imagename & "<BR>")
    	end if
	response.Flush()
    next

Open in new window


And the output I get is:

I don't know that I have enough detail, but will take a shot.  When you say you want this broken out into the different nodes for you database, do you just want this in additional variables?  Since I don't have all your code, I am not sure what you are doing with the Z Variable so I left it.  I also don't understand why you do you node select with Start with Photo as you have a node name Photos and one named Photo.  I would recommend a more clear search to find the node you expect.  The command that strips out the first part of the URL has more information that what is in your node value.  I am guessing you are just wanting the file name and I have tried to adjust for that.

Maybe try something like this:

set images_list = itemAttrib.SelectNodes("//Photo")

For Each i In images_list
	z = z + 1
	If Not i.SelectSingleNode(".//Tag") is nothing Then
		strTag = i.SelectSingleNode(".//Tag").text
		response.Write(strTag & "<BR>")
	End if
	If Not i.SelectSingleNode(".//Height") is nothing Then
		strHeight = i.SelectSingleNode(".//Height").text
		response.Write(strHeight & "<BR>")
	End if
	If Not i.SelectSingleNode(".//URL") is nothing Then
		strUrl = i.SelectSingleNode(".//URL").text
		If left(strUrl, 4) = "Http" Then
			strurl = right(strUrl, len(strUrl) - len("http://media.leisure-ict.net/photo/web/" & strHeight & "/"))
		Else
			strurl = right(strUrl, len(strUrl) - len("media.leisure-ict.net/photo/web/" & strHeight & "/"))
		End if
		response.Write(strTag & "<BR>")
	End if
	response.Flush()
next
