Hi David,

No. What I want to do is take:
<descrip type="reliabilityCode">3

and replace it with:
<descrip type="reliabilityCode">Very reliable

The "3" can vary and when I get this numerical code I have a function from where I can retrieve its text equivalent. I then need to insert the text equivalent back into the XML file. There are five of these numeric codes.

I'm new to XML and have never used XPath before so I'm struggling at the moment. I've been researching XPath and LINQ and just can't seem to get the hang of them.

I have been using the looping as that's what I'm used to doing in VB and C#.

The last thing that I will need to do is go through each element and depending upon the value of the subject field write the whole element to a new file for that subject. But first thing first and replace the numeric codes with text.

The subjectField is very similar other than there are over 700 subjects. I already have a function which converts the numeric subject field codes into text, and as above I need to insert the text back into the XML file.
