If you want to extract values of specific attributes, just search it with @<attribute-name> in the XPath. An example:

SQL> DECLARE
  2    x          XMLTYPE :=
  3               xmlType('<A A="A" T="256cff52" F="SECUF" U="admin" B="AID" C="panID" US="L_NAME" L
="en" >
  4  <T N="Table01">
  5  <C A="D"> 
  6  <C>Fid</C>
  7  <O>AMACYR</O>
  8  <N>null</N>
  9  </C>
 10  <C A="A">
 11  <C>UID</C>
 12  <O>null</O>
 13  <N>256cff52</N> 
 14  </C>
 15  </T>
 16  </A>');
 17  BEGIN
 18    -- Extracting value of attribute "T" of node "A"
 19    DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(x.Extract('/A/@T').getStringVal());
 20  END;
 21  /
256cff52

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Alternatively, have a look at dbms_xmldom.getattributes.

Or simply:
SQL> select Extract(xmltype(
  2  '<A A="A" T="256cff52" F="SECUF" U="admin" B="AID" C="panID" US="L_NAME" L="en" >
  3  <T N="Table01">
  4  <C A="D"> 
  5  <C>Fid</C>
  6  <O>AMACYR</O>
  7  <N>null</N>
  8  </C>
  9  <C A="A">
 10  <C>UID</C>
 11  <O>null</O>
 12  <N>256cff52</N> 
 13  </C>
 14  </T>
 15  </A>' ),
 16  '/A/@T') val
 17  from dual;
VAL

256cff52

Hi,

I am facing a small problem with this query.

When I am trying to extract value of Attribute "A" of Node "C", the output is coming DA in single row.

1 select Extract(xmltype(
2 '<A A="A" T="256cff52" F="SECUF" U="admin" B="AID" C="panID" US="L_NAME" L="en" >
3 <T N="Table01">
4 <C A="D">
5 <C>Fid</C>
6 <O>AMACYR</O>
7 <N>null</N>
8 </C>
9 <C A="A">
10 <C>UID</C>
11 <O>null</O>
12 <N>256cff52</N>
13 </C>
14 </T>
15 </A>' ),
16 '/A/T/C/@A') val
17* from dual
SQL> /

VAL
--------------------------
DA

but in my requriment i need output in 2 rows like

VAL
--------------------------
D
A

Number of rows depends on by least node. In our example "C" is the least node.


Thanks in Advance.

Regards,
Ram.
