I am using XMLDOM to open and read the nodes of an XML documents on a remote server.

The names of the files are based on the date.  

But it is doing something weird.  If I try to open a file named "xxx20080902" and it is not there it is opening "xxx20080920".  Any idea why?

Can I check for the files existence before trying to open using XMLDOM?

This is the command to check to see if the file exists.
Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 
If filesys.FileExists("c:\somefile.xml") Then
    'File Found
    'File not found
End If
