Reading an RDLC XML file in VB.NET

Last Modified: 2018-10-18
Hi all,
I'm having a problem reading in an RDLC xml file.  My purpose is to collect information about the dataset(s), e.g. Dataset Name and Table name.
I've been dealing with xml projects for decades and for some reason every piece of code I try returns nothing.
            Dim xmlDOC As New XmlDocument()

            Dim nodeList As XmlNodeList = xmlDOC.SelectNodes("/Report/DataSets/DataSet")
            For Each node As XmlNode In nodeList
                MsgBox("DataSet Name: " & node("Name").InnerText)

        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
