Query XML-Document Action
Query a XML File in a SharePoint Library with a XPath-Expression.
1. Add “Query XML-Document” Action to a SharePoint Designer 2010 Workflow
2. Configure the action
List Item: The list item that represents the XML-Document
XPath: The XPath query to execute
Selection Type: Defines what should ne selected (Inner XML, Outer XML, Value)
Output: The result of the XPath Query. When the expression returns more than one node each node will be append to the result string. E.g. “<Node>1</Node><Node>2</Node><Node>3</Node>”. This would not be
valid XML and could not processed with the Query XML Action. To generate valid XML again surround the nodes with a root node with the Build Dynamic String Action.
Example: Query an Infopath XML-Document and write the result to the history log
3. Publish and run the workflow
