Search Through XML

so i am working with xml for the first time.  it basically categorizes a bunch of variables into different types with different attributes.  the numer of variables and name of variables are dynamic and will be different each time.

what i need to do is search through the xml statement and break it down into smaller pieces for further processing (of course, if there is an easier way, let me know)  Smiley Happy

for example,

<A>.............................<END><B>.......<END><C>........................................................................<END>

it's easy to find the starting position of A, B, or C, but haven't had any luck getting the "end" position.  i used find, findw, index, indexw, and all, nothing seems to work for me.

i just want it to break into <A>...........................<END> into 1 variable, so on for B and C into their own variables as well.

then after that, i will use variables within each segment to further process the dataset.

thank you.
