Hi folks, hope someone can help me.

I have an XML file which i am trying to filter by Brand using XPath, there may be other ways of doing it but the particular application i am using requires XPath.

So if i set the XPath as /Table i get 6000 elements, each one looking something like this :

<Table>
<MatrixID>1533</MatrixID>
<Brand>Bassaya</Brand>
<ProductCode>basagnez</ProductCode>
<ShortDescription>Bassaya Agnez BlackL/XL</ShortDescription>
<Range>Bassaya Agnez</Range>
<StockLevel>Green</StockLevel>
<Colour>Black</Colour>
<Size>L/XL</Size>
<SupplyType>Stock Lines</SupplyType>
<Trade>14.24</Trade>
<RRP>29.99</RRP>
</Table>

Great, but i want to filter out all the Brands except one, i'll say Bassaya for arguments sake as it is in the preview.

So my understanding was that something like this should work

/Table[Brand=Bassaya] .. but it fails.

sorting by price greater than works like this

/Table[RRP>49.99] ... so i guess i'm kinda on the right track, anybody know any better ?

Thanks for your help folks.

You need to put quotes around Bassaya e.g.
/Table[Brand="Bassaya"]
