HI,
Im relatively new to XML and was wondering how I could use DOM to produce a "per shop" report showing a list of the items available in the given shop (shop 1 first then 2), the item description, stock level and calculate a total value of the stock level from the xml code below? I want to use the shop id as an input to the program. How can I get to the shop element and from there choose the item child?


<shops>
<shop number="1">
