Hi experts,

I have recently converted my way of loading libraries/references from the usual VBA way (Tools->References) to more of a late binding way (CreateObject("Referencename")) and I have problems with loadXML in my Msxml2.DOMDocument.3.0. I use MS Excel to generate an XML string and then I try to load it and save it to a folder, but the XML I save always turn out blank, whilst the text I have generated always looks quite ok (attached).

So I wonder what I am doing wrong, and what I have to do to make the generated XML save properly.

Any help appreciated,
eX.

Think I solved it.

I added a:
SourceXML.validate

Which finally gave me an error to work with.
It seemed to be missing the XML version number in the automation, how it worked earlier I don't know.
