Hi,<BR><BR>A while ago I read though the excellent article "Improving Using XML to Share Constants Across Projects" by Rachael Schoenbaum (http://aspnet.4guysfromrolla.com/articles/011204-1.aspx). At the time I was looking for something else so just tried using the code and when it fell over left it.<BR><BR>I&#039;m not looking at it again and have contact Rachael about it but have been unable to migrate the code up. I&#039;ve added the new namespaces and also updated little things like the Replace function but I can&#039;t seem to get it passing anything other than 0 back except for when I hardcode the version number. I was just wondering if anyone else had managed to update the code and could advise me where I&#039;m going wrong.<BR><BR>I won&#039;t post the code for now to save the size of the post but if you want to see where I&#039;ve got to let me know and I&#039;ll dump it for you :)<BR><BR>Cheers<BR><BR>Tim
