My issue is how to get to the <IBAN> value shown three lines from the end of the sample above.
1. Although not shown in the sample, the tag <IBAN> is not unique in the message; there's a second value for the Creditor side of the payment. This is true for other values too (i.e. tags not unique in message).
2. Can the tag IBAN be addressed in 1 PARSE statement, or do I need to issue successive PARSE statements to step my way down the hierarchy ? If one, how, e.g. do I concatenate the preceding hierarchical tag values ?
We have very little experience of XML on the mainframe in this site and nothing that has had to handle a message with this structure.
Be pretty careful when you ask details about some ISO formats which is risky
ISO specifications are <freely> available so talking about them is not a legal problem
if somebody has to implement the standards he/she/it has to know about them
the only thing to be careful about is when posting excerpts/quotes from the documentation
IIRC the ISO <documentation> is not completely free so misquoting, quoting too much
might result in some kind of copyright violation
still small quotes can be posted under the fair use assumption
