use this code snippet to load you XML file

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dim dataSet1 As New DataSet
Dim filePath As String

filePath = "Complete path where you saved the XML file"
dataSet1.ReadXml(filePath)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

you can the bind it to any control you wish to use to display the data

eg.       dataGrid1.DataSource = objDataSet.Tables(0).DefaultView
            dataGrid1.DataBind()

Naaaw, first loop through to count

Once counted, redim

then .MoveFirst

Then loop through to populate

array(i,0) = foo
and
array(i,1) = bar
