How to extract empty tag values into a data bank

Neil Posts: 38

tool: SOA test 9.9

I am extracting a value to data data, sometime the data is expected to be empty.
The data bank throws an exception that: No nodes found.

I want to retrieve some value even though the value is empty.

I tried to go into option of data bank and set extract empty value as 'a' - But it did'nt work


for the below x-path , The assertion returns - No nodes as the value is empty.

what will be the x-path to extract some 'x' when value in the tag is empty.
