    Importing from xml to textbox

    Hi, I am new to infopath but Ive been watching some videos. I have an end goal. My boss has a load of quizzes he wants on his sharepoint page. they can easily be converted to xml (xml because i think its going to be the most versatile for what I want to do). I dont want to have to make a form specific for each and every quiz. my plan is to either make quizzes multiple choice quizzes, or written quizzes or numerical answer quizzes - so i can use repeating tables so that the number of questions doesnt matter. example: If that is my XML then I have worked out how to import xml into drop down boxes for my multiple choice answers (can this be done for radio/check buttons?) so that Canada, America and Canada, England are the multiple choice options. I havent however been able to put (in this case) "What Country is Ontario in" into a text box as the "question". So thats really my question. can I grab that xml tag (title) and put that into a text box. I cant seem to do it. An example of doing this would be really really handy - or maybe this isn;t the way to make quizzes? i dont want to have to go through hardcoding in the questions if possible. If someone can either describe, or show me how to do this kind of thing so that I can have an xml file with all my questions in and depending on which quiz the user chooses it populates the questions? thanks v much
