Hi,

I am using SimpleXML to take the data from the sample XML below.

How do I extract the Value of CL 1266 by specifically search against Nummer="5"

<WinsApp>
  <Import>
    <ManipulationCtx>
      <Akt>
        <AktPr>
          <AktDaten>
            <AktChiffre Nummer="3">Technisch</AktChiffre>

            <AktChiffre Nummer="5">CL 1266</AktChiffre>

            <AktChiffre Nummer="9">FRA (FRANKFURT MAIN - FRANKFURT)</AktChiffre>
            <AktChiffre Nummer="10">GRZ (GRAZ  - GRAZ)</AktChiffre>
            <AktChiffre Nummer="4">20.05.2012</AktChiffre>
            <AktChiffre Nummer="11">22:10:00</AktChiffre>
            <AktChiffre Nummer="12">20.05.2012</AktChiffre>
            <AktChiffre Nummer="13">23:25:00</AktChiffre>
            <AktChiffre Nummer="28">O</AktChiffre>
          </AktDaten>
        <AktPr>
      <Akt>
    <ManipulationCtx>
  <Import>
<WinsApp>

Thanks

James
