    Hi, I had the following XML coming out, Can you please advise how can i get the value for a field in XML called ID_NUMERIC i.e. 711355.. I am getting this XML in string field. The field ID will remain constant so if possible how can i get it by field name directly. I made the required data in bold in the succeeding code .

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><limsaaaml xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://sssssss"> <header> <parameter name="SESSION"> 209103</parameter> </header> <body> <transaction id="TRAN1"><system response_type="system"><entity type="SAMPLE"><actions><action><command>CREATE</command><parameter name="TEMPLATE">AZEEM</parameter></action></actions> <fields> <field id="AREA" direction="in" datatype="Text">XXXX</field>

    Hi mmazeemahmad,

    You could use the XmlDocument's GetElementsByTagName to get all the field and choose the field which has the id named 'ID_NUMERIC'

    XmlDocument xmlDocument = new XmlDocument();
                //write your own path of the xml file
            XmlNodeList list=    xmlDocument.GetElementsByTagName("field");
                foreach (XmlNode item in list)
                    if(item.Attributes["id"].Value== "ID_NUMERIC")

    Best regards,

    Ackerly Xu
