I have a field in Oracle table with XML data that varies in size and position.  I need to pull out the data from some of these nodes using SQL.

For example in the XML below the node &BADGE_NUM contains the value TEST05.  I would like to write an sql that returns TEST05 in a specific column.  I cannot use SUBSTR because fields prior to BADGE_NUM vary in length so BADGE_NUM is not always in the same position.



dialogresponse.xml?GID=1&DID=11&EVENT_NAME=PRDORD-MTN&MODE=ON&MENU_TYPE=PROMPT&XMLINTERF=Y&BADGE_NUM=TEST05&F_CLOCKTIM=20140414101758&F_ENTITY=10393002&F_OPER=1506&F_QTYCOMP=0&STARTSTOP=S&SBM=M&LAB-T=L&F_SUBCODE3=A&F_SUBCODE4=&CREATOR=MBRESNAH&ORIGREF=&F_ENTITY_T=W&trans_reason=SOLUMINA ADJUSTMENT&F_ROUNDASCLOCKOUT=false&
 Unknown error
