Himanshu, If you are looking for XRef elements that have set the value of LinkEnd to Null, then in the Find/Change dialog box, select Element from the Find pop-up menu. In the resulting Find Element dialog box, type XRef for the Element Tag, LinkEnd for the Attribute Name, and Null for the Attribute Value. Click Set and then Find. If by "Null" however, you mean you want to find LinkEnd attributes that have not been set, it is harder to find them. The subject of your message says "warning". Is it an error in your template for LinkEnd not to be set? If so, you can use Element > Validate to find the errors. If not, you might temporarily make it an error by importing element definitions from a variation of your EDD that requires the attribute value. You can then validate. Once the errors are fixed, you can reimport the correct EDD. As far as why only some LinkEnd attributes display in the Structure View, you can control the attribute display in two ways. You can set it globally with View > Attribute Display Options. You can set it for one element by clicking the + or - on the right of the element's bubble in the Structure View; + displays additional information, - removes information that is currently shown. (If you hold down the Shift key while you click the + or -, the display of all siblings of the element will be set to match). There are three possible settings: 1) Show all attributes defined for the element, whether or not values have been set 2) Show only those attributes that either have values or that are required to have values in a valid document 3) Do not show attributes --Lynne Lynne A.
