    Syntax for reading attributes in an ASP/VBScript XML file


    What is the Syntax for reading attributes in an ASP/VBScript page invoking
    an XML file?

    I know how to read the elements, but am having a problem reading the attributes.

    Thanks,

    Doug

    For example, suppose you have an XML document like this and you want to find
    the id attributes for all subitems. As long as you know the path to the
    element, you can retrieve the attributes easily. Assume the file is loaded
    into a DOMDocument variable named "doc." The @ symbol tells the parser to
    select an attribute rather than an element.

    Dim nodes as IXMLDOMNodeList
    set nodes = doc.select("items/item/@id")

    <items>
    <item id="item1">Item 1</item>
    <subitem id="subitem1">SubItem 1</subitem>
    <item id="item2">Item 2</item>
    <subitem id="subitem2">SubItem 2</subitem>
    <item id="item3">Item 3</item>
    </items>

    Thanks. Well, that seems simple enough, but when I try it, I get an"Object
    doesn't support this property or method: 'select' " error.
