Hi Chris,

You need to add the namespace as an extra parameter to the extract method e.g.

select
extractvalue(xmltype(x),'/microplateDoc/experimentSection/plateSection/plateType/text()','xmlns="http://moleculardevices.com/microplateML"') from test_xml;

EXTRACT(XMLTYPE(X),'/MICROPLATEDOC/EXPERIMENTSECTION/PLATESECTION/PLATETYPE/TEXT



PlateType

If there were mulitple Plate Types you need to use the xmlsequence function to create a table of values somthing like

select extract(z.column_value,'/plateSection/plateType/text()')

Hi Chris,

Seems as if the namespace thingy
(xmlns="http://moleculardevices.com/microplateML") is getting in your way:
