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++ ?

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)
