Ok, I'm having problems with trying to retrieve the nodes from an XML string.  For some reason I am not getting anything assigned to the nodes object.  The loadXML works without failure.

Below is my code, and at the bottom is an example (as best I could) of the XML string.

----- Code -----
    cXML.loadXML sXML
   
    Set objXMLNodeList = cXML.documentElement.selectNodes("opt")
    'I have also tried the following:
    'Set objXMLNodeList = cXML.documentElement.selectNodes("\\FVR\AO\opt\*")

    For Each objNode In objXMLNodeList
        Debug.Print objNode.Text
    Next

----- End of Code -----

----- XML String -----
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<p784:FVR xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/" xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:p784="http://xx.xxxxxxxx.xxx/xxxx/xxxxxxxx/1111111">
<p537:AO xmlns:p537="http://xx.xxxxxxxx.xxx/xxxx/xxxxx/2222222">
<p537:attribute xsi:nil="true" />
<p537:opt>
<p537:id>1</p537:id>
<p537:desc>1994</p537:desc>
</p537:opt>
<p537:opt>
<p537:id>2</p537:id>
<p537:desc>1995</p537:desc>
</p537:opt>
<p537:opt>
<p537:id>3</p537:id>
<p537:desc>1996</p537:desc>
</p537:opt>
</p537:AO>
<ns2:vvvvvvv xmlns:ns2="http://xx.xxxxxxxx.xxx/xxxx/xxxxx/3333333" xmlns:ns1="http://xx.xxxxxxxx.xxx/xxxx/xxxxxxxx/444444444444444">
<nwyr>0</nwyr>
</ns2:vvvvvvv>
</p784:FVR>
----- End of XML String -----

Oh, I guess I should add the declarations for the XML objects...


    Dim cXML As New MSXML2.DOMDocument40

    Dim objXMLNodeList As MSXML2.IXMLDOMNodeList
    Dim objNode As MSXML2.IXMLDOMNode

Try this:
Set objXMLNodeList = cXML.getElementsByTagName("opt")
OR
Set objXMLNodeList = cXML.documentElement.selectNodes("//FVR/AO/opt")

Sorry for taking so long to reply.

Neither of the two suggestions worked.

I must say that I have never seen tags (with colons) like this:

<p784:FVR>
or
<p537:opt>

I'm wondering if that's part (or a source) of my problems.

It is also my first time see this. You need  to set SelectionNamespaces Property,. It should be somethings like this:

cXML.loadXML sXML
cXML.async= false;
set ns = "xmlns:na='http://xx.xxxxxxxx.xxx/xxxx/xxxxxxxx/1111111' xmlns:nb='http://xx.xxxxxxxx.xxx/xxxx/xxxxx/2222222'";
cXML.setProperty("SelectionNamespaces", ns);
Set objXMLNodeList = cXML.selectNodes("//FVR/AO/opt")
