I need help with an XPath expression. How do I get a concatenated value of the node <p:TransactionDetailText> based on the sequence in the node <p:TransactionDetailTextSequence>? The number of <p:TransactionDetailText> nodes is not fixed. Below is the XML code I have.

That depends. For a start, what's a "concatenated value"? I don't recognize that as XPath terminology.

By saying "concatenated value" I mean, my Xpath expression should return "AT T/P/O DEFT DID CALLED THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TRANSACTION AND THE CALL WAS NOT ANSWERED. CALL BACK IS SCHEDULED FOR THE SAME.". In Xpath temrinology I believe it's something like concat(p:TransactionDetailText1, p:TransactionDetailText2,........).
I agree. Here's the link:
