Invalid xml

In the following VB how do I handle it if there is invalid text when loading the XmlDoc with (text)?
     Dim XmlDoc As New XmlDocument()
     XmlDoc.LoadXml(text)

I don't want ti go to a catch...
I want to set a variable to "Error on file" and then a GoTo

I'm afraid you'll have to use a Try/Catch. The LoadXml will invoke the internal XML parser, which is what will throw the error. You have no other option than to handle bad XML in the parser. That is, unless you want to download an XML parser that will give you more control over your XML validation.
