When using the DOM Count XML elements on an element name that contains a namespace, you have to pass the fully qualified name (namespace + element name) to the DOM Count XML elements command. Otherwise the element may not be found.

Consider an element named TestElem with a namespace of FirstNS. Not using the namespace would produce the following code snippet:

elementName:="TestElem"
myCount:=DOM Count XML elements (elementRef; elementName)


It hould be rewritten to instead look like this:

elementName:="FirstNS:TestElem"
myCount:=DOM Count XML elements (elementRef; elementName)
