Set XMLDOC = server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
Set XMLDOC = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP.3.0")

Which is the difference between them?

I am xml newbie and I need to learn about it. Could you give me a clue where I can get some good stuff to learn it?

    Hi hidrau,

    two differences, in short

    the first object is a xml dom object that you would use if you load the XML from disk
    the second is you use if you get the XML from a URL, through http

    the first object is from msxml1
    the second object is msxml2 style, bound to the actual msxml3 dll

    you have some dimensions of options here
    whatever you need (disk or http) use the MSXML2 objects, preferably with the msxml4 dll

    msxml4 does not come with IE, so you have to install that

    good luck
