Doesn't look that tough Justin. Why do you need path at all if going after the top level?

Also can you explain what "multiple calls" you are currently doing.

I have an existing RPG *SRVPGM that pulls an XML document into a data structure. It makes multiple XML-INTO calls, and I’m wondering if I can accomplish it with a single XML-INTO (or if I’ll need to use XML-SAX). It’s currently using the path parameter on XML-INTO to navigate down two levels. I tried to point it at the top level, but that failed.

XML snippet:
<product … />
<product …/>
<load …/>
<load …/>
<stage …/>
<stage …/>
{pattern repeats}

Data structure:
Dcl-ds gOutputDs qualified inz ;
Products likeDs() dim() ;
Stages likeDs() dim() ;
productsToLoad likeDs() dim() ;
loadedContainers likeDs() dim() ;
unloadedProducts likeDs() dim();

RPG (current snippet):
Xml-into€ gOutput.products %xml(fullFilePath :’doc=file path=topLevel/products/product allowextra=yes’);

I was hoping I could find the correct “path”, but so far the RPG docs & Google have failed me.
