That simply attempts to test if there is a child which is a "Firstname:" element. Of course there can't be one because that's not a valid name for an XML element. Start by describing the actual test which you want to do. Then write an XPath expression for that test. (Post the description here if you can't proceed.)

Hi Paul & Gamini,
I managed to get it working using test="contains(.,'Firstname:')".
The test="Firstname"" spat the dummy.
Thanks for trying anyway,
