expression A variable that represents a Worksheet object.

Parameters

Name

Required/Optional

Data Type

Description

XPath

Required

String

The XPath to query for.

SelectionNamespaces

Optional

Variant

A space-delimited String that contains the namespaces referenced in the XPath parameter. A run-time error will be generated if one of the specified namespaces cannot be resolved.

Map

Optional

Variant

Specify an XML map if you want to query for the XPath within a specific map.

Return Value

Range

Unlike the XmlDataQuery method, the XmlMapQuery method returns the entire column of an XML list, including the header row.

Note Note

XmlMapQuery allows developers to query for the existence of particular maps. It can not be used to query for a piece of data in a map. For example, it is valid for a mapped range to exist in which the XPath for that range is "/root/People[@Age="23"]/FirstName". An XmlMapQuery call for this XPath will returnreturns the correct range. However, a query for "/root/People[FirstName="Joe"]" expecting to find "Joe" within the above mapped range will fail because the XPath definitions for the mapped ranges are different.
