Copying xml into another on a condition

Hi Ranchers.,

I am trying to copy one XML into other but I only want to copy entire block of elements if one particular child tag exist.

For example

<Elements>
<element>
<a1></a1>
<b1></b1>
<c1></c1>
</element>
<element>
<a1></a1>
<b1></b1>
</element>
</Elements>

So in above xml I want copy all <element> tags only if <c1> exist in that.

How do I achieve that?

Thanks in advance ,

With an if-statement?

You're going to have to be more specific about exactly what it is you can't do. What have you got so far?
