#### xpath - how to get an element name?

I'm using the following xpath in .net

//Station[@name="Station1"]/WI/Boards/Board[@sn="12345"][not(@finish)]")

to test if there is a Board element with NO "finish" attribute.

If there is, I need to get the @title of the WI element...but haven't
been able to figure it out yet (and yes, I do user XpathVisualizer!).

Also, how can I test if the above xpath results in no/null nodeset? It
doesn't seem to work for me unless I first set an attribute.value
string to test (e.g., Dim unfinished As String =
n1.Attributes.GetNamedItem("start").Value).

Thanks for any help!

Kathy

Dinamic Naming in Design Grid or SQL
I have a union query that gathers financial data from a current period and a prior period. The users uses a pick list to pick two dates. The union query then runs the two queries and "sums" them together to get an output something like: current budget, prior budget, budget delta $120$110 $10 There are several "current-prior-delta" triplets. My question is, in stead of naming the collumns "CBCst", "PBCst", & "BCDelta" is there a way to name them using the format function? Something like: ...

Getting indents to line-up with tabs
Hey all, Thanks in advance for the advice. Using Word 2003 on XP-SP3. I've made my default Normal style to have tabs every 0.25". Lately I've noticed that when I "click and drag" the margin icon (the downward/upward facing pentagons), I cannot get them to line-up with the tab settings, e.g. on 0.25, 0.5, or 0.75", no matter how carefully I try. I end up having to double-click on it, which brings up the paragraph menu, and then I can set the left indentation exactly to 0.25, 0.5, etc. and the hanging indent to 0.25. Any ideas?

How to pass a Nodeset to an XPath extension function?
I am using the .NET framework v2.0.40607 with Visual C# Express and I would like to create some custom XPath functions to use directly in a XSLT stylesheet.

However, I do not know how to create a function that will accept a Nodeset as a parameter. I tried writting a function taking a XPathNavigator object, but it does not work for all XPath queries that return a Nodeset: I get an error &qu...

Are there any shortcuts to typing range names?
As I prepare to link workbooks, I have to type descriptive range names, e.g.: CDA_GrossSales_Case1 Now, the workbook contains 3 different scenarios, therefore there will also be named ranges: CDA_GrossSales_Case2 and CDA_GrossSales_Case3 There will be several other sets of named ranges and, in each instance, the name will only differ by that one differentiating number on the end. Both from the point of view of reducing typos and unnecessary typing, I have been looking (in vain!) for a way to copy the names from one range to the next, so that I all would have to do would be to chang...

XPath Validation
I'm looking for a way to Validate an XPath prior to executing the expression, without using a try catch clause. For example: I'm looking for something that would tell me that "\some/Xpath\to\Node" is invalid... Any Ideas? Hi, As far as I know, the .NET framework could not validate XPath directly with class library. The only thing we can do is to use try/catch block. Or you can try to find some 3rd-party tool such as XML spy to validate it. HTH. Kevin Yu ======= "This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights." Thanks K...
