How to import XML data into MsAccess 2007 Table (without .xsd schema file)

Hi Experts,

I have a bunch of xml files that I need to analyze in MsAccess.  I try to import through the MsAccess 2007 Wizard but get the following error:

"Cannot find the specified schema file 'XML-ORDERS.xsd.' Remove or update the file reference, and try again to import."

The header of the aforementioned file has a reference as follows:

"XML-ORDERS xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="XML-ORDERS.xsd"

What should I do to parse this file and read the bits of information that i need into an Access Table? Do you have any VBA Code to do this?

Thanks in advance!!!

I found this site that does exactly what I need in Excel....

But this piece of code gives the following error (clicking on debug it highlights "Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset") and says:
"Compile Error: User-defined type not defined"

Sub Read_XML_Data_1()
    Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim stCon As String, stFile As String
    Dim i As Long, j As Long
    Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
    stFile = "C:\Report.xml"
    stCon = "Provider=MSPersist;"
    With rst
        .CursorLocation = adUseClient
        .Open stFile, stCon, adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly, adCmdFile
        Set .ActiveConnection = Nothing
    End With
    With ActiveSheet
         'Add the fieldnames to the first row.
        For j = 0 To i - 1
            .Cells(1, j + 1).Value = rst.Fields(j).Name
        Next j
         'Copy the data from the recordset.
        .Range("A2").CopyFromRecordset rst
    End With
     'Closing the recordset.
     'Release object from memory.
    Set rst = Nothing
End Sub
