Hello,

I have the following code to parse an XML page (below):

Set xmlDOM = CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument.3.0")
xmlDOM.async = False
xmlDOM.setProperty "ServerHTTPRequest", True
xmlDOM.Load(Filename)
xmlDOM.setProperty "SelectionLanguage", "XPath"

set CountryList = XMLDom.SelectNodes("//result")
            For Each i In CountryList
            
            CountryCode = ""
            CountryDescription = ""
            
            CountryCode = i.SelectSingleNode("//CountryCode").text
          CountryDescription = i.SelectSingleNode("//CountryDescription/element[Language='EN']/Description").text
            
            set RegionList = i.SelectNodes("//Regions")
            
                  for each j in RegionList
                  
                  RegionCode = ""
                  RegionDescription = ""
                  
                  RegionCode = j.SelectSingleNode(".//RegionCode").text
                RegionDescription = j.SelectSingleNode(".//RegionDescription/element[Language='EN']/Description").text

                  SQL = "Insert INTO CountryReference ("
                  SQL = SQL & "CountryCode, CountryDescription, RegionCode, RegionDescription"      
                  SQL = SQL & ") VALUES ('"
                  SQL = SQL & CountryCode & "','" & CountryDescription & "','" & RegionCode & "','" & RegionDescription & "')"
                        
                  response.Write(SQL & "<HR>")
                  response.Flush()
            
                  Next
            
            Next

The XML page I am parsing is attached.

The problem I have is that I am getting the regions, but the country code and description is not changing - as can be seen here: http://www.villasdirect.com/_admin/scripts/LG_Data_Feed_ReferenceRegionsV1.asp

Austria (search for >AT<) has a lot of regions, but if you look, you'll see that they all appear under Andorra.

I'm not sure what I've done wrong but help needed and appreciated!

THANK YOU!

probably should be
 i.SelectNodes(".//Regions")

Open in new window

set CountryList = XMLDom.SelectNodes("//result")

Open in new window

should be
set CountryList = XMLDom.SelectNodes("//Country")

Open in new window

CountryCode = i.SelectSingleNode("//CountryCode").text

Open in new window

should be
CountryCode = i.SelectSingleNode("./CountryCode").text

Open in new window

set RegionList = i.SelectNodes("//Regions")

Open in new window

should be
set RegionList = i.SelectNodes("./Regions")

Open in new window

RegionCode = j.SelectSingleNode(".//RegionCode").text
RegionDescription = j.SelectSingleNode(".//RegionDescription/element[Language='EN']/Description").text

Open in new window

should be
RegionCode = j.SelectSingleNode("./RegionCode").text
RegionDescription = j.SelectSingleNode("./RegionDescription/element[Language='EN']/Description").text
