Hi hadn't realized that the root node was removed, and you example works, thank you very much. Making string more complex, and trying to take you advice into account I am still drawing a blank!!

$newxml = qq~ <record> <namepairs> <name>My Name </name> <img>My image</img> <brochure>My Brochure</brochure> </namepairs> </record>~; my $xml = new XML::Simple(ForceArray => 1, KeyAttr => [], KeepRoot => +1, SuppressEmpty => ''); my $data = $xml->XMLin(\$newxml); #print $data->{'name'}; print $data->{'namepairs'}->{'name'}; #print Dumper($data); exit;

    The dump shows
    VAR1 = { 'record' => [ { 'namepairs' => [ { 'brochure' => [ 'My Brochure' ], 'name' => [ 'My Name ' ], 'img' => [ 'My image' ] } ] } ] };

    You don't account for the top level hash or any of the arrays.

    print $data->{record}[0]{namepairs}[0]{name}[0];
      Ok, I hadn't understood the difference between the two structures I had posted. It's much clearer to me now. Thanks very much for you help and time.
