Re: Parsing large XML files FAST

I can't believe that my ISP (read: SYMPATICO.CA), which is the biggest
communications monopoly in Canada, forces me half the time to resort to
google to post on usenet.  They suck, they just suck, and they'll keep
on sucking forever.  Anyway ... back to my XML issue....

I've installed .net, and searched documentation that would explain the
of XmlTextReader.
But I guess I cannot just skip the ABC of ASP.Net . Most of the scripts
in C , and sometimes, there's no
indication of what scripting language is used. Can someone post an
equivalent of the code below using in ASP.NET and
the XmlTextReader? I am really stuck, and I don't have the time, the
and the brains to re-invent the wheel.
Thanks in advance.

'------- XML OBJECT ---------

Set objXMLDoc = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument.4.0")
objXMLDoc.async = false
objXMLDoc.setProperty "SelectionLanguage", "XPath"
objXMLDoc.setProperty "SelectionNamespaces", " ... etc ..."

strURL = "D:\wwwroot\webdir\odp_split\CD_01\odp_content_002.xml"

'--- load XML
bLoadResult = objXMLDoc.load(strURL)

'--- get number of nodes I want to loop

Set oNode = objXMLDoc.selectNodes("//node_name")

For a = 1 to oNode.length

  '-- Get some data I need from each node ---
  Set oNode = objXMLDoc.selectSingleNode("//node_name[" & a

  '--- insert in DB. Commands for Connection to DB, etc are assumed

  strSQL = "INSERT INTO MyTable (Field1) VALUES ('"&ioNode.text&"')"
