Given the following XML:


<doc:document xmlns:doc="urn:su:abc:de:doc">
<titleList>
<title>
<value>Test</value>
</title>
</titleList>
</document>


and using the following query:


select X.*
from mytable,
XMLTABLE(xmlnamespaces('urn:su:abc:de:doc' as "doc"),
'$d/doc:document' passing docxml as "d"
COLUMNS
thetitle varchar2(50) PATH 'titleList/title/value') as X


I get the following error:

from mytable,
*

ERROR at line 2:

ORA-19276: XPST0005 - XPath step specifies an invalid element/attribute name: (doc:document doc='urn:su:abc:de:doc')


I don't understand why I get this error. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Without really knowing what I didn't abide by, I'll try again:

- I searched for XPST0005 in orafaq and no results returned, so I'm posting the question.
- Oracle DB Version: 11.2.0.3
- OS: Sun Sparc 5.10
- I cannot copy/paste the exact SQLPlus session, as it is on a stand-alone computer.

Given the following XML:

<doc:document xmlns:doc="urn:su:abc:de:doc">
<titleList>
<title>
<value>Test</value>
</title>
</titleList>
</document>


and I ran the following query and received an error:

select X.*
from mytable,
XMLTABLE(xmlnamespaces('urn:su:abc:de:doc' as "doc"),
'$d/doc:document' passing docxml as "d"
COLUMNS
thetitle varchar2(50) PATH 'titleList/title/value') as X


from mytable,
*

ERROR at line 2:

ORA-19276: XPST0005 - XPath step specifies an invalid element/attribute name: (doc:document doc='urn:su:abc:de:doc')




I don't understand why I get this error. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Your inserted XML data is invalid. The following demonstrates that, then uses some slightly different data, followed by a slightly different query. This is an example of why we ask for a copy and paste. Please review what you have very carefully and make sure you have posted exactly the right XML data and exactly the right query.
