I have this code:

for each IXMLDOMNode in IXMLDOMNodelist

why it gives an infinite loop showing only the first nodename in the nodelist? Confused. The nodelist contains more than one node. Thanks.

that's because you are using the class name

try this...
Dim n as IXMLDOMNode
for each n in IXMLDOMNodelist

I just want to show it is a node type.
I did just as what you suggested. By the way, I use MSXML3.0 in .NET.

Why not just use a conventional for loop

dim i as integer
dim nl  as IXMLDOMNodeList

for i = 1 to nl.Count

Also consider upgrading to v4.  It's possble there is something wrong with v3 in this area.

The conventional loop did work, but why for each loop doesn't work?
some examples use for each loop. Could you give more detail why for each loop doesn't work? Thanks.

I have no idea.  Nothing I can find at MS and it works fine in 4.0 which is what I have running.
