I have the following information in a file that is xml but contains no root element. This file is parsed with a 3rd party software to generated a final document. The problem is I have to parse some of the documents by myself due to certain circumstances and can't figure out a way to place the code below into a main xml file. I get the error - no root element invalid xml.

Any Help would be appreciated.

I found a way to do this in MSXML 3.0 with the property Fragment=true but I can't find the properties in version 4.0.

Thanks,

ASP Code
Code:
sub updateXML(xat, byRef node, data_tag, byRef xmlDoc) 	
 	Dim xmlXat : Set xmlXat = Server.CreateObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.4.0") 	
 	xmlXat.validateOnParse = false 	xmlXat.load(xat) 	
 	if   xmlXat.parseError.errorCode <> 0 then 		
 	    Response.Write "Error with " &  node.attributes.getNamedItem("data_tag").text 
 		Response.end 	
 	else 		
 		node.appendChild xmlXat.documentElement 		
 		call updateDataTag(node, data_tag, xmlDoc) 	
 	end if 	
 	set xmlXat = nothing 
 end sub
