Properly loading XML Document

Is this the correct way to load an XML document and prepare it for usage?

I have an SDK that I interact with that takes valid XML and submits it to a database. It currently complains with
"found an error when parsing the provided XML text stream".

I know I’m missing something within these lines.

XmlDocument inputXMLDoc = new XmlDocument();
string input = inputXMLDoc.OuterXml;

// input should be ready to process?

it appears something may be wrong with the xml document in itself.

and there's nothing wrong in your code... though,

XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
string xml = doc.InnerXml;

depends on what you're trying to do with the XML?  Are you just trying to get at the XML structure, or data contained within the structure, or both?

Also, is the error occuring in the above code or is it occurring in the "process()" method?  If it's in the process method, what is that method trying to do?
