XML in Classic ASP

I have a question that hopefully someone can answer very quickly.  I'm trying to read in an XML file and extract data from it.  The following is a portion of the XML and also my code (the file/folder location is correct when I have it displayed):

    vfolder = txtFolder.value
    vfile = txtFile.value
    vlocation = vfolder & vfile    
    set xdDoc = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument")
    xdDoc.load(vlocation)
    for each objItem In xdDoc.selectNodes("Response/Trip")
        vtype = "T"
        vtripid = objItem.selectSingleNode("id").text
        vtripdate = objItem.selectSingleNode("start_date").text
        vdisplayname = objItem.selectSingleNode("display_name").text
        vtriplocation = objItem.selectSingleNode("primary_location").text
        vprofileref = ojbItem.Attributes.getNamedItem("profile_ref").value
Response.Write "Type = " & vtype & "<br>"
Response.Write "TripId = " & vtripid & "<br>"
Response.Write "TripDate = " & vtripdate & "<br>"
Response.Write "Display_Name = " & vdisplayname & "<br>"
Response.Write "Location = " & vtriplocation & "<br>"
Response.Write "ProfileRef = " & vprofileref & "<br><br>"
    next
   
I have rearranged this so often, that I'm driving myself crazy and it's probably a very simple fix!  I've most likely screwed it up worse than when I started... So any/all assistance is appreciated!  My goal is to be able to first read through and document all the TRIPS and then go through again and document all the profiles.  So I would like to use a for/next loop.

Here is the XML:

- <Response>
  <timestamp>1355152311</timestamp>
  <num_bytes>3240</num_bytes>
 - <Trip>
   - <TripInvitees>
      - <Invitee profile_ref="OjMfu7ahFBno_TZ966pnFw">
         <is_read_only>false</is_read_only>
         <is_traveler>false</is_traveler>
         <is_owner>true</is_owner>
       </Invitee>
     - <Invitee profile_ref="bQBFJxFyGL8D0RQItvLj5w">
        <is_read_only>false</is_read_only>
        <is_traveler>true</is_traveler>
       </Invitee>
    </TripInvitees>
    <id>32960045</id>
    <relative_url>/trip/show/id/32960045</relative_url>
    <start_date>2012-12-30</start_date>
    <end_date>2013-01-06</end_date>
    <display_name>disney</display_name>

Check if the document loaded properly by inserting the following lines.
If xdDoc.parseError.errorCode <> 0 Then
     Response.Write "error: " & xdDoc.parseError.reason & " in " & xdDoc.parseError.line & ":" & xdDoc.parseError.linepos
end if

Everything else looks fine, except one typo ( vprofileref = ojbItem.Attributes.getNamedItem("profile_ref").value)

The only issue I see (outside of the aforementioned typo) is that you are trying to iterate over the attributes of a <Trip>, which in this case there are none. I believe the "profile_ref" you are looking for is actually for the <Invitee> element. If that be the case, then you need to change the last line from:

vprofileref = objItem.Attributes.getNamedItem("profile_ref").value

to something along the lines of:

set vprofilerefs = objItem.selectNodes("TripInvitees/Invitee/@profile_ref")

for each prof in vprofilerefs
    vprofileref = prof.value
next

I agree, that was not accurate. Here's a sample code to enumerate the Profiles. May be that will be useful.
    	for each objInvitee In objItem.selectNodes("TripInvitees/Invitee")
                vprofileref = objInvitee.getAttribute("profile_ref")
        	for each objProfile In xdDoc.selectNodes("Response/Profile[@ref='" & vprofileref & "']")
                Response.Write "Profile Name = " & objProfile.selectSingleNode("public_display_name").text
        	next
       	next
