Default Converting an XML data island to 2 arrays

I'm using the following setup.

I've an ASP page that returns XML from an SQL query

Response.ContentType = "text/xml"

oRS.Save Response, 1


This returns beautiful XML in IE6. The data is 2 columns - ReportDate and Value. No problems here. I've a VB6 app which parses this and returns 2 Arrays.

Now I'm trying to turn this XML into 2 arrays but using VBScript in another .htm page. Thus:-

'Set up chart data from XMLIsland
    'Extract the contents of the XML Data island and insert it into two
    'arrays: one array for the chart categories and one array for the
    'chart values.
    Dim nCount, nodes, j
    Dim xmldoc
    Set xmlDoc = CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument")
    xmlDoc.loadXML sXMLDSCPath
    Set nodes = xmlDoc.childNodes.Item(0).childNodes.Item(1).child Nodes
    nCount = nodes.length
    Redim aReportDate(nCount)
    Redim aValues(nCount)
    For j=1 to nCount
       aReportDate(j) = Nodes.Item(j - 1).Attributes.Item(0).Text
       aValues(j) = Nodes.Item(j - 1).Attributes.Item(1).Text


Now sXMLDSCPath is returning a corrent link, which contains a corrent, well formatted XML page.
But I get an 'Object required' error for the following line:-

Set nodes = xmlDoc.childNodes.Item(0).childNodes.Item(1).child Nodes

I know this is going to be horribly simple, but I just don't know why it doesn't work in VBScript. I haven't posted the XML (I didn't want to post too much info) but can if required.

any help greatly appreciated.


P.S. - I know this would fly in .NET, but for various reasons has to be done in old fashioned VBScript in an HTM page.
