Hi Experts,

i'am reading with Xpath the attached XML File:

with this command i get all 3 ID's
//ChildObjects/ObjectType/ObjectList/Object/@*

Open in new window

This is the result:
id="1800"
id="2657"
id="2658"

I'am looking for a command with this result: id="1800".
As second i need a command with this result: id="2657" | id="2658" as resultset.

Do you have any ideas?
xpath.xml

That depends what exactly you want to achieve...

For an instance, this one
//Object[@id="124239"]/ChildObjects/ObjectType/ObjectList/Object/@*
givesyou 1800, and this one
//Object[@id="1800"]/ChildObjects/ObjectType/ObjectList/Object/@*
gives you 2657 and 2658
But there could be many more options.

Thank you very much for the answer.

Clear, i overlooked the startingpoint:

//Archive/ObjectType/ObjectList/Object/@   ==> id="124239"

And now i get the following fields.
