Try

Dim usersDoc As DOMDocument
Set usersDoc = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOMDocument")

or

Dim xmldoc
Set xmldoc = CreateObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument")

Looks like you are working from VB, why are you using late binding?

<<Set usersDoc = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")>>

You could just use

Dim usersDoc As DOMDocument
Set usersDoc = New DOMDocument

hi dylan

your code should loo like this:

    Dim xmldoc As New DOMDocument
   
    xmldoc.async = False
    xmldoc.loadXML (strXMLResult) 'if you load XML-data as a String
    xmldoc.load (fileXML) 'if you load XML-file

that should work
