old pedant, thank you for the reply

it failed to load the xml, showing

XML load failed: XML document must have a top level element.

the xml actually having top level element in the response xml that i could see. i assume
it is not get loaded here.

below is the code i wrote

req=request.Form("xml") '// i changed the form ACTION to this page

Set httpObj = Server.CreateObject("msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP")
httpObj.Open "POST", "http://www.servername.com/xml_req_parser.php", False
httpObj.Send req

Set xmlObj = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
'//xmlObj.Load httpObj.ResponseXML
xmlObj.Load httpObj.ResponseXML.xml

if xmlObj.parseError.reason <> "" then
Response.Write "XML load failed: " & xmlObj.parseError.reason & "<br>"
response.Write "load success"
end if

set rootObj=xmlObj.getElementsByTagName("Rooms")

response.Write rootObj.length
