HI there.. my problem is as follows .. <BR><BR>i am using the xml dom to parse an xml file and within my loop i am inserting the data in the xml file into a datbase. this works fine ..but only sometimes!! it seems to work every other time ... some days it works first time .. while other days it does not work at all....when it does not work it gives the error "OBject required" on the following line ... <BR><BR>for each xmlPNode in xmlRoot.childNodes...... <BR><BR>why does this happen? i am certin that my code is correct .. after all it does work(but not all thetime) <BR><BR>i must also point out that the xml file i parse is identicle every time so the problem should not lie with that... <BR><BR><BR>any ideas
