how to get a xml parser working? (Can someone help me???)

Wow. This is a lot to ask from one post. And for only 25 points??? You've got a whole application you're looking for here.
Hi keeting,

I imagine you will need to write some code to interface with the XML parser.  Your only other question was in VB, so try the following tutorial on VB and XML - http://www.codeant.com/tutorials/vb/VBandXMLtutorial.html 
It gives you reading in the XML, and then just do some ADO to write to Access.

As for parsing HTML, unless you have rigorous specs on what the HTML structure will be ahead of time extracting data (i.e. meaningful data not just tag content) is near impossible.  If you however wish to only archive the content that is reasonable.
