I apologize for this confusion.
As I said I am really new to this, so please bear with me..

I think I failed to explain the requirement.
You have almost got exactly what I need. Still let me rephrase.

testfile.xml is the source file.
There will be multiple values with the same tagname LoanIdentifier. I need to search inside the xml whether any xml <LoanIdentifier> and </LoanIdentifier> tags containing the string ValueToBePrinted.

If contains, then I need to print that particular data ValueToBePrinted to a variable.

So actually it falls under criteria#2 from the list you have mentioned in your reply:

Are you trying to verify that there is data for a LoanIdentifier tag in your XML file that has the value ValueToBePrinted ?
Please let me know if it explains.

I repeat: Is this a homework assignment?
If not, what is the real-world application for this assignment?

You can call it home work assignment for the readiness of a xml formatting project.

Hello Rookie2014,

This is really bad, we have a different community for homework assignments. As well as before posting the posts you should have read the rules carefully.
Please go through all the rules for forums and post accordingly.
