The following is a demonstration of the "use xpath" feature of the External Data extension, to get specific values from the XML using XPath notation.

Data is retrieved from this sample XML file, using the following call:

{{#get_web_data:url=http://producthelp.sdl.com/SDL%20Trados%20Studio/client_en/sample.xml
|format=xml
|use xpath
|data=salutation=/letter/salutation,maxlength=/letter/title[2]/@maxlength,address=/letter/address[@translate='no'],url=/letter/weblink}}


Salutation: Dear Daniel,

Max length: 40

Address: Smithtown

URL: Error: no local variable "url" has been set.

Logo ALT text: Error: no local variable "logoalt" has been set.
