How to get value from attribute where name is not known?

Example in AF:


      Attribute A


         Attribute B


Element 2 is an subelement of Element1

Now, AttributeA should get value from /Element1/Element2/AttributeB

AttributeA is an Stringbuilder Reference with '.\Element2|AttributeB';

Fine, this works for me, but:

I don't know the name of Element2 in an Template!


Therefore i use a stringbuilder to construct the path using other fields like %Element% etc

The result for an Attribute "Elementpath" is then ".\Element2|AttributeB"

Now, my AttributeA should substitute the String of Elementpath and deliver back the Value of that, you know what i mean?

It's like a pointer to a pointer logik.

Actually i am not getting it done :-(


Did somebody has a solution how to construct such a solution?



I am heavily using this logik:

PumpValue  (=PIPoint "%@.|Tagname%)

    |--Tagname (=Stringbuilder "X_";%Element%;"_YYY";)


It is the same as above, but getting a PIPoint looking to another PiPoint in AF

I Need an Attribute, looking down the tree to another Attribute to get that value.
