I need some help with error message about an xml  variable not being undefined.  I am trying to create an xml file from a classic ASP program but the I am getting an error on lione 286 as documented below.  Any suggestions?  

line 286 -  Set oXML = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")

Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01F4)   Variable is undefined: 'oXML'
/Apogee/residential/account_history2.asp, line 286

My Code:

If Request.ServerVariables("REQUEST_METHOD") = "POST" Then
Response.Write("Test 2")
      ' find xml file path  
 dim strFilename,strXMLFile  
 strFilename = "Apogee.xml"  
 strXMLFile=server.mapPath(strFilename)  
 Set oXML = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
 Set oXML.DocumentElement = oXML.createElement("P21_VPT_DATA")
 
 ' check file exists  
 bitFileExists = oXML.load(strXMLFile)  
 
 if bitFileExists then  
 tmpChildnodes = oXML.documentElement.childnodes.length - 1  
 intCurrentRecord = tmpChildnodes + 1  
 else  
 ' create xml  
 oXML.appendChild(oXML.createProcessingInstruction("xml","version=""1.0"""))  
 oXML.appendChild(oXML.createElement("BillingData"))  
 intCurrentRecord = 0  
 end if  
 
 ' create record  
 Set oXMLRec = oXML.createElement("UtilityId")  
 
 ' Create an id attribute  
 Set oAtt = oXML.createAttribute("id")  
 oAtt.Text = intCurrentRecord  
 oXMLRec.SetAttributeNode oAtt  
 
 ' Set remaining fields  
           
 for HRi = 0 to UBound(results, 2)
 ' name  
 Set oXMLData = oXML.CreateElement("BillingCycleData")
 oXMLRec.appendChild(oXML.createElement("meterReadDate"))
 oXMLRec.appendChild(oXML.createElement("revenue"))  
 oXMLRec.appendChild(oXML.createElement("usuage"))  
 oXMLRec.childnodes(0).text = results(BILL_DATE, HRi)
 oXMLRec.childnodes(1).text = results(BILL_AMOUNT, HRi)  
 oXMLRec.childnodes(2).text = results(KILOWATT_USAGE, HRi)
 oXML.DocumentElement.AppendChild oXMLData.cloneNode(true)
 next
 

 oXML.documentElement.appendChild(oXMLRec.cloneNode(True))  

 oXML.save strXMLFile  

 response.redirect(strFilename)  
 oXML = Nothing  
 end if

Hojoformo,

Are you using Option Explicit so that you are required to define variables?  Add the line below just above the line with the error.

Dim oXML

If that doesn't fix it let me know.  Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.
