A PSubject: XQuery
Author: A P
Date: 10 Oct 2005 11:42 PM
Dear Sir/Madam,
I tried to split XQuery:

doc(“bib.xml”)//last

into

for $l in doc("bib.xml")/bib/book/author/last
return
{ $l }
and
for $e in doc("bib.xml")/bib/book/editor/last
return
{ $e }

but I receive errors.

Could you please tell me how to split

doc(“bib.xml”)//last

into two queries, so that I get last names of author and last names of editors without using (//).

Thanks in advance…

Hi,
you can use the XPath expression

doc("bib.xml")/bib/book/(author|editor)/last

Hope this helps,
Alberto
