You must be aware of using xml DOM obj, this is the simplest way to read from the XML node

Set objDoc = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
objDoc.async = False
objDoc.load("file.xml") or objDoc.LoadXml(xmlString)

Set Node = objXMLDoc.documentElement.selectSingleNode("Parent Node/NodeTextToRead")

  response.write Node.text
' reading the node value usiging text property
hope this will help you.
All the best.......
