What should the text file contain?

I hope you know that XML files are text files. If you want the content as it is, just open and read...

If you need any kind of formatting (more of a report from XML data ) you may use XSLT transformation.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

XML files are usualy UTF* encoded UNICODE. if you want to convert it to ascii , be aware, that most XML parsers, won't be able to parse it afterwards.
if you need assistance reading UNICODE in VB here is a KB article in MS
