Hi mousemat24;

See if something like this is what you are looking for.

using System.Xml.Linq;

string element = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><note><to> Tove</to><from>Jani</from><heading>Reminder</heading><body>Don't forget me this weekend!</body></note>";
           
XDocument xdoc = XDocument.Parse(element);

var parsed = (from x in xdoc.Descendants("note")
              select new
              {
                  To = x.Element("to").Value,
                  From = x.Element("from").Value,
                  Heading = x.Element("heading").Value,
                  Body = x.Element("body").Value
              }).ToList();
  
             
foreach (var p in parsed)
{
    Console.WriteLine("TO : {0}\nFrom : {1}\nHeading : {2}\nBody : {3}", p.To, p.From, p.Heading, p.Body);
}
