Parse XML Response Data with VBA????

I have the following XML response after making a post to a URL.  I am trying to write a VBA function that will get the NodeValue of the <soap:Text ...>  node which is basically the error message to display in a message box.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"><soap:Body><soap:Fault><soap:Code><soap:Value>soap:Receiver</soap:Value></soap:Code><soap:Reason><soap:Text xml:lang="en">Server was unable to process request. ---&gt; Data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1.</soap:Text></soap:Reason><soap:Detail /></soap:Fault></soap:Body></soap:Envelope>


The function I have so far is ...

Function XMLParser(strXML)
Dim xmlDoc As New DOMDocument
Dim currNode As IXMLDOMNode
Dim rootNode As IXMLDOMNode
Dim oNodeList As IXMLDOMNodeList
Dim strResponseTxt As String
Dim x As Variant

xmlDoc.loadXML (strXML)
Set rootNode = xmlDoc.documentElement
strResponseTxt = xmlDoc.documentElement.selectSingleNode(rootNode.nodeName & "/soap:Text").NodeValue

End Function

I get an error on the strResponseTxt  = ........  line that says "Object variable or with block variable not set"

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi ET,
Just a guess based on similar experiences with other objexts in Access.  You are assigning an object related expression to a string.  Try the CStr function to convert the expression to a string before the assignment..  

strResponseTxt = CStr(xmlDoc.documentElement.selectSingleNode(rootNode.nodeName & "/soap:Text").NodeValue)

etsherman,

  This is not a direct response to your question, but I believe it will be helpful.  Take a lookat the following:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Access_Coding-Macros/Q_23352134.html

  Towards the bottom of that thread is a comment I made with a link to an easy 123 understanding XML and some sample code.  Harfang also posted some code in that thread and I gave a sample in the last comment or so.

  In additional, when trying to understand how to load XML, the bext technique I found was to put a break in the code after it was loaded, then call up the immeadiate window.  From there, I explored the XML structure by using debug.Print <statement>  and was able to figure out what was valid when and how.

  The other thing you can do when execution is stopped is hover over a reference (before the line executes) and tell what portion of your statement the error is refering to.  My guess it is the .SelectSingleNode that is causing the problem.

HTH,
JimD
