I have this simple XML file that I need to parse out.  I'm looking at the feature ID's and need to know the value of each.  I don't care about the rest of the XML.  I'm using VB6 and kinda new to XML.  I have a reference set to XML ver 4 in my project already.  Thanks!

Try this.
    Dim oDom As New DOMDocument
   
    Dim oNodes As IXMLDOMNodeList
    Dim oNode As IXMLDOMNode
    Dim oInfoNode As IXMLDOMNode
    Dim oAttr As IXMLDOMAttribute
   
    If oDom.Load("c:\test.xml") Then
        Set oNodes = oDom.documentElement.selectNodes("hasp_info")
       
        For Each oNode In oNodes
            For Each oInfoNode In oNode.childNodes
                If oInfoNode.nodeName = "feature" Then
                  For Each oAttr In oInfoNode.Attributes
                      If oAttr.baseName = "id" Then
                          MsgBox oAttr.Text
                      End If
                  Next
                End If
            Next
        Next
   
    End If

I tried you code but the If oDom.Load statement doesn't run.  I'm passing a XML string into the oDom.Load rather reading from a file.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

I inserted this error statement to see why it is skipping:
Err.Raise oDom.parseError.errorCode
and I receive an  Run-time error '-2147221020(800401e4)':  "Invalid Port Number"

do you have a reference to "Microsoft XML v4.0" if your project?
Attach your XML file and I'll take a look.

Your xml is mssing the root node. If it's not possible to add one you could read it as text into a string variable, wrap that with a root node and load the dom with .LoadXML(). See attached.
