What should I do to assign a function to the below xml-loading if the xml-file does not exist.
Some kind of if-statement or???
could it be
If( where != what)
var myXML:XML = new XML();
var XML_URL:String = "example.xml"
var myXMLURL:URLRequest = new URLRequest(XML_URL);
var myxmlLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader(myXMLURL);
myxmlLoader.addEventListener("complete", xmlLoaded);

function xmlLoaded(event:Event):void
{
	myXML = XML(myxmlLoader.data);
}

You will want to listen for IOErrorEvent.IO_ERROR, when that event is dispatched you can handle things from there.
myxmlLoader.addEventListener("ioError", xmlLoadError);

function xmlLoadError(e:IOErrorEvent):void {
   //do something here
}

On adding to @edchipman, also add a try and ctch to be on safer side that the file loading is in acceptable xml format. Like this one:
var myXML:XML = new XML();
var XML_URL:String = "example.xml"
var myxmlLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
myxmlLoader.addEventListener("complete", xmlLoaded);
myxmlLoader.addEventListener("ioError", xmlLoadError);


function xmlLoaded(event:Event):void
{
        myXML = XML(myxmlLoader.data);
}

function xmlLoadError(e:IOErrorEvent):void {
   //do something here
}

try{
     myxmlLoader.load( myXMLURL );
}catch( e:Error){
     trace(e);
}
