Loading XML strin

I have a SQL Select statment that returns XML. When I execute the statement from my vb.Net function and load the XML to a string it works fine. When I try to do the same thing in a vb6 function the XML come back messed up? Any ideas.
'Sample SQL statement form stored procedure get_data
Public Shared Function GetSalesCustomerPricing(ByVal Acct As Integer) As String
    Dim oDs As DataSet
    Dim oCn As New SqlConnection(HttpContext.Current.Session("SQLConStr"))
    Dim oCmd As New SqlDataAdapter("get_data", oCn)
    oCmd.SelectCommand.CommandTimeout = 0
    oCmd.SelectCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
    oCmd.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@Acct", SqlDbType.Int))
    oCmd.SelectCommand.Parameters("@Acct").Value = Acct
    oDs = New DataSet
    oCmd.Fill(oDs, "Results")
    Dim strXML As String = ""
    Dim dtRow As DataRow
    Dim oTable As DataTable
    oTable = oDs.Tables("Results")
    For Each dtRow In oTable.Rows
        strXML = strXML & dtRow(0).ToString
    'Return XML string
    Return "<Results>" & strXML & "</Results>"
End Function
'Returned from vb.Net function
Private Function getData(lngAcct as long) as string
    Dim strXML As String
    Dim strSQL As String
    Dim oRs As Object
    Set oRs = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    Screen.MousePointer = vbHourglass
    On Error GoTo Failed
    strSQL = "get_data "
    strSQL = strSQL & "@Acct = " & mlngAcct
    oRs.Open strSQL, moConnection.Connection
    Do Until oRs Is Nothing
        Do Until oRs.EOF
            strXML = strXML & CStr(oRs.Fields(0))
        Set oRs = oRs.NextRecordset
    Set oRs = Nothing	
    getData = strXML
    Screen.MousePointer = vbDefault
    Exit Function
    Screen.MousePointer = vbDefault
    MsgBox "getData() failed. Error is: " & Trim$(Err.Description), vbCritical, "Critical Message"
End Function
'Returned from vb6 function

Xml is returned as a Stream and not as a recordset.  In other words, you need to use the ADO Stream object instead of the Recordset object.

I wound up write a .Net dll that I use in my vb6 program to return the XML
