how to get absolute XPath

Hi,

I'm trying to get the absolute xpath to a node in DOM (XmlDocument).  I know
I can build it by warlking the tree recursively, but I'm wondering if there
is an API in DOM or in XPathNavigator that allows me to get the absolute
path for a given node?

Thanks,
--Ader.

The DOM in .NET (XmlDocument, XmlNode, etc) (at least 1.1) in my view 
has no API to give you the absolute XPath expression to a node.
As for XPathNavigator I don't see any methods or properties in there 
either to simply give you an XPath expression to a node.

So you are right, with XmlDocument and a node in that document you need 
to walk the document tree to build that XPath.

Thanks... that's what I was afraid of... it seems a little retarded to me to
have to walk the tree (or requery for ancestors) after doing an XPaht query,
just to build the absolute path.  But I guess I have no choice for now.

Thanks again, and happy holidays!

Get External Data
I have a 2 column table which is likely to change length whenever the Refresh Data menu option is selected. The table links to another software package (SAGE). I don't have formulae in adjacent columns so my problem can not be solved by checking the "Fill Down formulas in columns adjacent to data" box. I do, however, have text in adjacent columns (which the user selects from an in-cell drop down list) which I need to remain aligned with the relevant row.

Brithdays & Anniversaries get recreated from time to time
Apparently Outlook occasionally (I guess at the begin of a year) recreates recurring appointments from the birthdays and anniversaries that it finds in my Contacts-entries. What's annying about this is, that for lots of birthdays I now have duplicates, i.e. TWO appointments. And what's desastrous is that all these new appointments have a reminder set at 12pm of that day. Thus, in the last couple of days repeatedly the alarm of my PDA has gone off to remind me of some friends birthday and woke up me and my wife at midnight (which each time caused some major quarrel and my PDA a...

Can anyone get the front and rear pages of a booklet to display?
I can merrily paste a pic onto facing INTERNAL pages of a booklet. But I can't display "facing pages" for the covers (I can print preview)... I can't get a picture to go onto the front and rear covers, the picture gets cropped to the spine. I want one picture that wraps around the covers of the booklet (4" x 8 1/2") to fit into a #10 envelope. This is kind of tricky. The best way to achieve this would be doing the procedure on an inside facing page so you can readily see what you are doing. Insert the picture, copy/paste the picture, stack the two images b...

Making cell references super-absolute
How do I make a cell reference so permanent that even inserting rows or columns above, below, or within the ranges of the formula does not affect the reference? In other words, "=AVERAGE($E$7:$E$11)" is good and well, until I insert a row of cells in row 7, and then Excel changes my formula to "=AVERAGE($E$8:$E$12)". I don't want Excel to change my formula. I'll also be happy to consider other workarounds-- but the people who will be using this template are technology-illiterate. Thanks. You are aware, aren't you, that the super-absolute formula no longer a...
