_Document.SelectNodes Method

Returns an XMLNodes collection that represents all the specified nodes in the order in which they appear in the document.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.dll)

XMLNodes SelectNodes(
	string XPath,
	string PrefixMapping,
	bool FastSearchSkippingTextNodes


Type: System.String
Required String. A valid XPath string. For more information on XPath, see the XPath reference documentation on the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) Web site.
Type: System.String
Optional Object. Provides the prefix in the schema against which to perform the search. Use the PrefixMapping parameter if your XPath parameter uses names to search for elements.
Type: System.Boolean
Optional Boolean. True skips all text nodes while searching for the specified node. False includes text nodes in the search. Default value is False.

Setting the FastSearchSkippingTextNodes parameter to True diminishes performance, because Microsoft Word searches all nodes in a document against the text contained in the node.
