Count Nodes

I wish to get a count of nodes in an xml file in vb.net, so I am using the 
following, as a simple example:



MyCount = xmlNodePart.Current.Select.//MyNode/Record[*]).Count



I saw in some xml specs that instead of [*] it should be [@*], but that does 
not work. Why would the @ symbol be needed?

* represents a wildcard for current node type, normally this means all 
elements, @ is a shortcut for attributes so @* is all attributes.
If you want all nodes in a file you do //node() or count(//node())
The expression you gave, if it were legal, tries to do something different 
altogether. It is fetching the count of those Record elements that have a 
parent of MyNode and that have child elements.

Cycle Counting
Hello, I am looking for ideas on how to cycle count serial number tracked items without increasing workload. Our serialized items are barcoded but the problem is the are situated on the pallet incorrectly and the pallet is placed on a third level of a racking system.

Counting Cells with Conditional Formatting
Is there a way to look at a row of data that is either highlighted yellow or red and to count only the data that is highlighted yellow and give me that number?

Smart List record count in 10.0 SP2
