you have to write the binding yourself, something like this:

Set oXML = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.DomDocument.6.0") 'creating the parser object
oXML.Load("data.aspx") 'loading the XML from the file 

opts = "<option value=''>Please Choose</option>"
For Each oNode In oXML.SelectNodes("/xml/houses")
    sValue = oNode.Text
    opts = opts & "<option value='" & sValue & "'>" & sValue & "</option>"
Next

Set oXML = Nothing

if opts <> "" then
     Response.Write "<select name='houses'>" & opts & "</select>"
end if
