Doug LundinSubject: Cleanup and combine question
Author: Doug Lundin
Date: 27 Sep 2006 12:02 PM
I have a query that returns a single value (below) and I have two questions regarding it. First, can it be reformatted so the namespace-uri is stated only once - to cleanup the xquery? Second, I want to add another value on the return set - given by another xpath - how can I modify this xquery to return two values?


/*[local-name()='html' and namespace-uri() 'http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml']/*[local-name()='body' and namespace-uri()='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'][1]/*[local-name()='div' and namespace-uri()='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'][1]/*[local-name()='div'
and namespace-uri()='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'][3]/*[local-name()='table' and namespace-uri()='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'][2]/*[local-name()='tr' and namespace-uri()='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'][1]/*[local-name()='td' and namespace-uri()='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'][2]/text()[1]

i Doug,

What you have posted is an XPath expression. In which context are you trying to use it?

XPath Query Editor

In the XPath Query Editor you should use the re-defined prefix value by default ns1, ns2, ect.

So you query becomes

In a similar way in XSLT and XQuery you will need to associate the namespace to a prefix then use the prefix to qualify you XPath expression

Hope this helps
