Re: R: Reading XML with &Amp; as part of string

   What you describe is the correct and expected behavior for the XPATH
   program.  The purpose of that program was to demonstrate how to keep
   track of the parent elements of each XML tag by putting them in a
   It does not, however, attempt to consolidate the character data between
   the elements into a single string, it doesn't need to because that's
   not what that program was trying to demonstrate. For an example of
   consolidating the character data, see the CHARDATA2 example.
   This mailing list is only for discussing the HTTPAPI and FTPAPI open
   source tools.   A discussion of Expat should be held on a
   general-purpose list or forum, such as one of these:
   [1]http://www.midrange.com  (use the RPG400-L e-mail list)
   [2]http://www.code400.com (use the RPG forum)
   [3]http://forums.iprodeveloper.com (use the RPG forum)
   For this mailing list, please keep to the topic of HTTPAPI, WSDL2RPG or
   FTPAPI.  Thanks!!

   Hi Scott
   No I am not using the HTTPAPI's XML parser. We installed the LIBEXPAT
   library from your web site and I am using the USERDATA.rpgle as an
   example for my program. (Sorry not the XPATH.rpgle as i mentioned in my
   previous mail)
   It seems like it is reading the text after the &. If i print the
   value to the spoolfile it prints an & and then on the next line the
   rest of the text.
   Here's the code to read the value from the tag:
                 WHEN  d.stack(d.depth) = '/soapenv:Envelope/soapenv:Body'

                 PrintMe =  %TRIM(%char(val));
                 Except Print;
                 DoW %Scan(' & ': %TRIM(%char(val))) > *Zeros;
                   val = %Replace('&' : %TRIM(%char(val))
                   : %Scan(' & ': %TRIM(%char(val))): 7);
                 PrintMe =  %TRIM(%char(val));
                 Except Print;
                 %OCCUR(PROCESSDATA) = d.procCnt;
                 PROCESSDATA.RTEPROCSTEP = %TRIM(%char(val));
   Here's my xml:
   <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

   So you are not using HTTPAPI's XML parser?!
