Retrieving XML data

P: n/a
Need to import weather forecasting information!

I am trying to make a report with a 5 day forecast of the weather.

I have an access database that I trying to accomplish this with a
button click.

I see where you can access weather data via XML from noaa.gov. I need
help on how to generate and import that information programmatically.

Your help will be most appreciated

Since you didn't post a noaa.gov url there is no way to give
a specific example.

Search this newsgroup or Google for XMLHTTP for info on how to
send a request and receieve a response via http.

Search Google for parsing the DOM or document object model for
info on what to do with the response once you get it.

Post a url if you want example code posted here.

I've been looking at some examples on the web - I referenced the MSXML
library and I'm studying the objects associated with the library but I
still need some help on starting the code.

Thanks!
