XML in ASP

Hi All,

Anyone having trouble 'Load'ing xml files with 'Msxml2.DOMDocu ment' in ASP?
The Server is IIS 5.1 and client is PocketPC2002 (Pocket IE).

The 'Load' method is always returning 'False' for me in the following snip:
*************** *************** *************** ***********
<%
Dim xmlAdminCfgDoc
Dim fError
Dim root
Dim acctlist
Dim nCount
Set xmlAdminCfgDoc = Server.CreateOb ject("Msxml2.DO MDocument")
xmlAdminCfgDoc. async = False
fError = xmlAdminCfgDoc. Load("C:\Inetpu b\wwwroot\MyWeb \AdminCfg.xml")
If fError = True then
Set root = xmlAdminCfgDoc. documentElement
Set acctlist = root.childNodes
nCount = acctlist.length
End If
%>
*************** *************** *************** ***********

Thanks in advance...

There is no error when loading in IE... I tried that before starting to code
the ASP actually.. :-(

You should use a URL, not a file system path, in the Load method. From MSDN:

Syntax
boolValue = oXMLDOMDocument .load(xmlSource )
Parameters
xmlSource
String containing a URL that specifies the location of the XML file.
Return Value
Boolean. Returns True if the load succeeded; False if the load failed.

It can be a file system path as well. The following is the full example
from MSDN (for VB code), note the example does not show an URL:
[Visual Basic]
Visual Basic Syntax
boolValue = oXMLDOMDocument .load(xmlSource )Parameters
xmlSource
String containing a URL that specifies the location of the XML file.
Return Value
Boolean. Returns True if the load succeeded; False if the load failed.

Example
The following Microsoft Visual Basic® example creates a DOMDocument object
and uses the load method to load a local XML file.

Dim xmlDoc As New Msxml2.DOMDocum ent
xmlDoc.async = False
xmlDoc.Load ("books.xml" )
MsgBox xmlDoc.xml
The code I had shown originally works in VB code (as opposed to VBScript in
ASP), so I am wondering if there are any known and undocumented issues ...

thanks anyways! :-)

No, "books.xml" IS a URL. Haven't you ever used Response.Redire ct
"newpage.as p" ? This will redirect to newpage.asp as long as it's in the
same website folder as the page in which this line of code is run. It's
known as a relative path. The same thing is done with anchor tags.

So it should work as coded? .. or should I use a relative path with (or
without) the Server.MapPath in the Load?

uhg .... I'm about ready to pull out my hair...

You know, I just looked at some of my old code and realized that I've used
file-system paths in my calls to the Load method. Have you tried using
Server.MapPath to make sure you've got the path correct? Here's an example
from one of my apps:

s = server.MapPath( "CurrencyRates" ) & "\curr" & FormatDate(Date (), 1) &
".xml"
DOM1.load s

Well that is the first method I used before attempting to the absolute path
method showing in my original post. It is just that (it seems) that no
method is working IN ASP. even an xml data island, or XMLHTTP is not
working ... simply does not load the file ............... ............... ..

Strip out any confidential data and send me the file offline so I can take a

UGH!

You know, I just looked at some of my old code and realized that
I've used file-system paths in my calls to the Load method. Have you
tried using Server.MapPath to make sure you've got the path correct?
Here's an example from one of my apps:

s = server.MapPath( "CurrencyRates" ) & "\curr" & FormatDate(Date (),
1) & ".xml"
DOM1.load s

HTH,

It can be a file system path as well. The following is the full
example
from MSDN (for VB code), note the example does not show an URL:
[Visual Basic]
Visual Basic Syntax
boolValue = oXMLDOMDocument .load(xmlSource )Parameters
xmlSource
String containing a URL that specifies the location of the XML
file. Return Value
Boolean. Returns True if the load succeeded; False if the load
failed.

Example
The following Microsoft Visual Basic® example creates a DOMDocument
object
and uses the load method to load a local XML file.

Dim xmlDoc As New Msxml2.DOMDocum ent
xmlDoc.async = False
xmlDoc.Load ("books.xml" )
MsgBox xmlDoc.xml
The code I had shown originally works in VB code (as opposed to
VBScript in ASP), so I am wondering if there are any known and
undocumented issues ...

thanks anyways! :-)
