Simply do a check for the existence of the node.

pstrXPath = "//pmt.success.list/"
pobjNode = objXML.selectSingleNode(pstrXPath)
If Not(pobjNode Is Nothing) Then
  payeeHoldingNo = pobjNode.nodeTypedValue
End if

FYI, A template for the XML I'm tryning to parse it at

In the script:

  pstrXPath = "//pmt.success.list/"
  payeeHoldingNo = objXML.selectSingleNode(pstrXPath).nodeTypedValue

I'll get an error if that pstrXPath doesn't exist.

Is there a way to check for its existance?
