LINQ join together

I'm trying to learn LINQ  - and use it to work through a huge XML string that gets passed from QuickBooks.

The section of the XML i'm working with is:
<SubtotalRow rowNumber="52">
     <RowData rowType="item" value="BZ:FDV" />
     <ColData colID="1" value="Total FDV (J159 - $3.95 CND)" />
     <ColData colID="8" value="18" />
     <ColData colID="10" value="310.30" />
</SubtotalRow>

Open in new window


I'm trying to pull the values for RowData (value attribute) and ColData (colID and value attributes).
At the moment, I can pull the RowData or the ColData - but not both.  I'm assuming it would be some sort of "join" statement.  

Here's the code I have :
Dim xdoc = XDocument.Parse(responseMsgSet.ToXMLString)

        Dim results = (From n In xdoc.Root.Descendants("SubtotalRow") _
                       From c In n.Elements("ColData") _
                       Where c.Attribute("value") IsNot Nothing _
                       Select c.Attribute("value").Value).ToList()

        For Each value In results
            MsgBox("Value = " & value)
        Next

Open in new window


Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi slightlyoff;

This modified code snippet should give you what you need.
Dim results = (From n In xdoc.Root.Descendants("SubtotalRow") _
               From c In n.Elements() _
               Where c.Attribute("value") IsNot Nothing _
               Select IF(c.Name = "RowData", c.Attribute("value").Value, c.Attribute("colID").Value & "|" & c.Attribute("value").Value  )).ToList()

For Each value In results
    If value.Contains("|") Then    
        Console.WriteLine("ColID = " & value.Substring(0, value.IndexOf("|")) & vbTab & "Value = " & value.Substring(value.IndexOf("|") + 1))
    Else
        Console.WriteLine("Value = " & value)
    End If
Next
