I have code after that so it gives me green squiggly lines after the End.

Personally I would unload the main application form. I would not recommend terminating the application abruptly.

You will want to compare against your cancel value, otherwise the code suggested above will end your program whether the XML file was loaded or not.
'Read from xml file

Try

   XmlReader.Create(xmlLoc)

Catch ex As Exception

   MessageBox.Show("Could not create file" & vbCrLf & ex.Message)

Finally

   e.Cancel = True

End Try
 

If e.Cancel Then

   End

   ' Or better still uncomment the following line

   ' Unload Me

End If

Open in new window

Sorry, for some strange reason I thought you were using VB6.

You want to close the current form.

Me.Close

If you get a blue squiggly under that try just Close. You will have to excuse my VB2005+ skills.
