Peter BuswellSubject: Xpath using a Variable for [@ID=1234]
Author: Peter Buswell
Date: 12 Oct 2013 05:03 PM
Newbie here - I can create the XML doc and use the Xpath tool to make a query. What I have not figured out how to do, is to use a variable in the Xpath. For example I can set up a path like
//Technician[@ID="1234"]/TechnicianCell using the Stylus Xpath tool.

I want to be able to test the format using a variable name for "1234" above. Where can I create a variable give it a variable and then test it in the xpath tool?

Duh....

Hi Peter,

XPath is designed to be simple, there is no support for external variables. XSLT and XQuery which host XPath, provide support for variables and parameters.

Hope this helps
