Howdy ranchers ,

I am new to XML and would like to know one thing. If i have an xml file in which there are lot of parent nodes with lots of child nodes as well. I would like to print selected nodes from the complete xml file, currently if i give alert, it just covers the part of my screen and shows only that much part of xml which the screen can take. So i would like to know how can i particularly select the Parent node only which i want.

an example to quote is as below :

I have an xml called TxnData.xml which has a lot of other nodes inside it.

now i want to see what data is in other child nodes of TxnData.xml which cant see, How can i do that ?

Please help me.

Thanks and regards,

If you want to see only the children of the second parent then
