I am getting the error "BC30203: Identifier expected." on this line if Div.selectSingleNode("./td[@class='score']").InnerText != null then and i can't figure out why...


		For Each div As Object In htmlDoc.DocumentNode.SelectNodes("//div[@class='matches']")' select all the divs within the code that contain *
 
    if Div.selectSingleNode("./td[@class='score']").InnerText != null then
		  lblHTMLOutput.Text += Div.selectSingleNode("./td[@class='score']").InnerText
    end if
        Next

Hmmm... Try the following:

if not Div.selectSingleNode("./td[@class='score']") is nothing then

Open in new window


if that doesn't work, plz provide a sample html where you get the error(if it is different than your other question), and possibly provide more of your code.
