I need to open an xml file, read the contents and store the column data in arrays. Display the data in a grid. Make changes to the data and save as a new xml file.

How do i load a xml file in VC++ ?

Thank you

Hi!
the MS way is to yse MSXML component for working with XML
for example:

     IXMLDOMDocument2Ptr spXMLDom;
     HRESULT hr = CreateObject(L"Msxml2.DOMDocument.3", IID_IXMLDOMDocument2, (void**)&spXMLDom);
     if (FAILED(hr))
          {
return hr;
          }
     VARIANT_BOOL bRes = spXMLDom->load(_variant_t(strName.c_str()));
     if (bRes == VARIANT_TRUE)
                   {
// work here with XML
                   }
     return S_OK;

BOOL CXMLFile::LoadFile(const CString &strPathName, IXMLDOMDocument **doc)
{
        IXMLDOMDocument* document = NULL;
     IXMLDOMParseError* parseError = NULL;
     //IXMLDOMElement* element = NULL;    
     HRESULT hr;
     BSTR bstr = NULL;
     VARIANT_BOOL varOkay;
     hr = CoInitialize(NULL);
     if (FAILED(hr)) {
          return FALSE;
     }

     hr = CoCreateInstance(CLSID_DOMDocument, NULL,
     CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER | CLSCTX_LOCAL_SERVER,
     IID_IXMLDOMDocument, (LPVOID*)&document);
     if (!document) {
          return FALSE;
     }

     document->put_async(VARIANT_FALSE);
     bstr = strPathName.AllocSysString();
     document->load (_variant_t(bstr),&varOkay);
     SysFreeString(bstr);
     
     if (varOkay) {

          BSTR reason = NULL;
