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.
