I'm trying to parse an XML (only provided part of the XML) response and return the values. My second set of code snippets does insert nulls into the table so I am looping over some node but I want the value of memberID or any value for that matter.

It would help if someone could explain how to get the values so I know how to do it.

This query returns nulls.

I'm betting I need two loops since each student has a <ns:return></ns:return> and then loop again to get to the inner elements.

I don't think that is correct either. One loop for the <ns:return></ns:return> elements.

You could try to add the namespace:

select extractvalue(value(p), '//ax216:memberId/text()','xmlns:ax216="http://gradebook.ws.blackboard/xsd"') as id                   from table(xmlsequence(extract(XMLResponse, '/soapenv:Envelope/soapenv:Body/ns:getGradesResponse/ns:return',
                                                               'xmlns:soapenv="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope",
                                                                xmlns:ax216="http://gradebook.ws.blackboard/xsd",
                                                                xmlns:ns="http://gradebook.ws.blackboard"'))) p)
       loop
          insert into ws_grades
      (value) 
      values 
        (r.id);
    commit;
      end loop;

That worked. Now that I can see how you did it I can apply that to my other code.

Thanks.

xmlns:ax216="http://gradebook.ws.blackboard/xsd"
//ax216:memberId/text()

Is there anything I can do if this number is changing? I believe what is happening is the web service is on applications servers so the number changes based on what application server you are hitting. The number was 216 but is now 217 and I have seen the number change for other XML responses.
