Reading XML

I am reading an XML file through the MSXML2.IXMLDOMNode.

Partof my XML looks something like this:

   <UseDefaultAddressFlag value="Yes"/>

I can't seem to find any attribute of IXMLDOMNode that will retrieve the value ("Yes", in the above case)

How do I retrieve the value?

That gives me an "Object variable or With block variable not set:

Works:
Debug.Print "> " & objNode.nodeName & " - (" & objNode.Text & ")"

Errors:
Debug.Print "> " & objNode.nodeName & " - (" & objNode.Text & ") - <" & objNode.Attributes.getNamedItem("value").Text & ">"

(In both above cases objNode has been set to MSXML2.IXMLDOMNode, I am using the Microsoft XML v4.0 library))

I discovered why I was getting the error.

Some tags do not have a value attribute.  So, is there a way (aside from "On Error Resume Next") to not cause an error when I run across tags that don't have a "value" attribute?

I have not seen a function to return that information, but you could of course loop on the attributes collection to find the one you are looking for.
however, if there will be alot of attributes in general, that method will cost alot more time than the ON ERROR methods...

Thanks.

On Error will work, of course, but it's never the preferrred solution.  Looping through the attributes to find out if the one I want is there would be more unneccesary coding than on On Error would be, so I'll stick with that.
