What Exactly Is XPath

XPath is a query language used to create expressions for finding data in the XML data file. These expressions can manipulate strings, numbers, and Boolean values. They can also be used to navigate an XML tree structure and process its elements with XSLT instructions. XPath is designed to be used by XSL Transformations (XSLT). With XPath expressions, you can easily identify and extract from the XML document specific elements (nodes) based on their type, name, values, or the relationship of a node to other nodes. When preparing stylesheets for transforming your XML documents into HTML, you will often use various XPath expressions in the select attribute.

If you scroll down the Shippers.xsl file, you will also notice that Access has generated a number of VBScript functions to evaluate expressions. To prevent the XSL processor from parsing these functions, the function section is placed within the CDATA directive.

2. Close the browser containing the Shippers.xsl file.
