First you have to load the XML file
var loader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, loadXML);
loader.load(new URLRequest(“file.xml”));


function loadXML(e:Event):void
{
        xml = new XML(e.target.data);
        trace(xml); // here you can see what nodes and how to parse them
}
