Title: Namespace Selection using SelectionNamespaces property

Hi Everyone,

I am using the following code to select a node from a document.

    'XPath as the search language
    xmlDOM.setProperty "SelectionLanguage", "XPath"
    'Select a namespace
    xmlDOM.setProperty "SelectionNamespaces", "xmlns:i2='http://www.i2group.com'"
    'Search for specified node
    Set elmTest = xmlDOM.selectSingleNode(txtNode.Text)
    'Catch 'some' errors
    If Not elmTest Is Nothing Then
        txtOutput = txtOutput.Text & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "node searched for = " & txtNode.Text & vbCrLf & elmTest.xml
        MsgBox "invalid XPath Statement"
    End If

The code works fine as long as I specify the namespace at every level

        eg i2:Environment/i2:Defaults

What I would like to do is set i2 as a default namespace so I can minimise the amount of typing for retrieval.

        eg Environment/Defaults

I have tried not specifying a prefix in the SelectionNamespaces property, however this does not work, I just get an XPath error

Any Ideas welcome

Thanks again
