where field is "color" and recordset is "picture".
So I am one deeper than the example I gave.  Plus, to confuse things a
little, my field name are field with attribute value name to describe
the element.  So the revised xml would look like (just a snippet of

    <recordset rsName="pictures">
        <record sample="1">
                <field fieldname="color">red</color>
                <field fieldname="color">brown</color>
                <field fieldname="color">red</color>

Yes, in this case the XPath would be more complicated ... sth like



When things get really gnarly, variables are a big help.

I hope that nobody gets upset because I inquired with a simplified
example of my data, It was easier than trying to describe the real
data I had.

Not at all: actually, I think that's generally a good idea. As long as you don't simplify the problem away! since it's *not* cool to say "thanks for the help, but that wasn't the real problem". But if you represent the problem properly, not only is no harm done, it's easier for everyone.
