Remove element from all entries

Post by neodjandre » Sat Jul 22, 2017 1:29 pm

Newbie Q: I have an XML file with about 2,000

Code: Select all

<element></element>
tags.

Inside each element there is an

Code: Select all

<html> content... </html>
tag.

I wish to delete the

Code: Select all

<html> content... </html>
nodes in all elements simultaneously.

How could I do this please?

thanx
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

If you are using Oxygen 17 or newer in the Oxygen Tools main menu there is an XML Refactoring tool which has lots of possibilities to batch change a set of XML documents, including a Delete element contents action.

Regards,
Radu
