Using the following code, when the XML markup does not find I get an error

Object required: '[object]'

How do I first check that the 3 strings are valid before tryign to make them objects and use them to overcome that error.

If not objXML.parseError.errorCode <> 0 then
  image = objXML.selectsingleNode("/dsp/result/domain/domain-listing/hybrid-items/store-offer/offer-image").text
  title = objXML.selectsingleNode("/dsp/result/domain/domain-listing/hybrid-items/store-offer/offer-name").text
  url = objXML.selectsingleNode("/dsp/result/domain/domain-listing/hybrid-items/store-offer/offer-url").text
end if

Thanks,

Try:

If not objXML.parseError.errorCode <> 0 then
  strPath = "/dsp/result/domain/domain-listing/hybrid-items/store-offer/"
  if not objXML.selectsingleNode(strPath & "offer-image") is Nothing AND not objXML.selectsingleNode(strPath & "offer-name") is Nothing AND not objXML.selectsingleNode(strPath & "offer-url") is Nothing then
      image = objXML.selectsingleNode(strPath & "offer-image").text
      title = objXML.selectsingleNode(strPath & "offer-name").text
      url = objXML.selectsingleNode(strPath & "offer-url").text
  end if
end if
