Hi friends!!

   I use MSXML.DomDocument, when i use its procedure like  createTextNode or other methods it doesnot create it and doesnot work. In short it doesn't create child nodes or base nodes. So, if any one knowing regarding this. Please help me.

Thanks in advance,

For example in VB you would do
    Dim y As MSXML.IXMLDOMText
    Dim x As MSXML.DOMDocument
    Set x = New MSXML.DOMDocument
    Set y = x.createTextNode("x")
   
So I wonder where you have create a new domdocument

here an example in C++ which creates a document and a root element on it:

IXMLDOMDocumentPtr spXMLDokument(__uuidof(DOMDocument));

//create a new Element, that will be the root!
IXMLDOMElementPtr spXMLNewElement = spXMLDokument->createElement(bstrRootName);
//set the new element as root resp. documentElement
spXMLDokument->PutRefdocumentElement(spXMLNewElement);
