Loading local Xml file into a data island
Posted on 2001-07-05
In IE5, is it possible to load an .xml file present on the user's local disk. I tried the following
A. var xmlDoc;
xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");
I get Error:Access is denied.
B. Declaring a data island within the HTML body
<XML ID="xmlData" SRC="file://c:/xyz.xml"></XML>
... nothing happens. If SRC points to an xml
file on the web server everything is fine.
Can anybody help?
