This chap has created a RSS VB6 reader and has put the code up for anyone to use so have a look and see if it does what you need.

The link to the Tortuga RSS ActiveX component doesn't work from the above site so get it from here

Hi wobbled!

I have looked at both links:

1- The first application seems a bit complicated for me. I'd rather writing a simple piece of code to read that xml, such as in .NET; i define a recordset then I sue the .ReadXml method and pass the URL. If you can extract the code that does that from this vb6 application and paste it here for me, then that'll do the trick.

2- I downloaded the Tortuga active x but I cannot see any sample code on how to use it!

Thanks,
