Some examples with different techniques are posted in following link

http://developer.yahoo.com/dotnet/howto-xml_vb.html

You can also convert it to a dataset

http://www.nullskull.com/faq/1889/convert-an-xml-string-into-a-dataset.aspx


Public Shared Function XMLToDataSet(ByVal xmlStr As String, ByVal schemaFile As String) As DataSet
        'Convert the XML to a dataset
        Dim sr As New StringReader(xmlStr)

        'Convert xmlData to a Dataset
        Dim ds As New DataSet

        If schemaFile = String.Empty Then
            ds.ReadXml(sr, XmlReadMode.InferSchema)
        Else
            ds.ReadXmlSchema(schemaFile)
            ds.ReadXml(sr, XmlReadMode.ReadSchema)
        End If

        For Each relation As DataRelation In ds.Relations
            For Each c As DataColumn In relation.ParentColumns
                If Not relation.ChildTable.Columns.Contains(c.ColumnName) Then
                    relation.ChildTable.Columns.Add(c)
                End If
                For Each dr As DataRow In relation.ChildTable.Rows
                    dr(c.ColumnName) = dr.GetParentRow(relation)(c.ColumnName)
                Next
            Next
        Next

        Return ds
    End Function
