in thread RSS Headline Sucker

Trying this again in HTML...Wow, your code is exactly what I need.  Cannot get it to run on Access though.
 
This is the content of my first table named ExternalNewsSources
 
 
ExternalNewsSourceID Title Link Description Source
1 SlashDot http://slashdot.org/ Headlines http://slashdot.org/slashdot.rdf
 
Format of the first table is as suggested
 
ExternalNewsSourceID  ->  autoNumber (internal unique id)
Title  ->  text  (name of the site)
Link  ->  text  (link to the site, not the source)
Description  ->  text  (description of the site)
Source  ->  text  (URL for the actual feed)
 
My second table is named ExternalNews and has the following columns:
 
SourceID          -text
PostDate          -text
Title             -text
Link              -text
Description       -text
 
I have a System DSN named TESTSERVER as in the example and I'm running your example code as published. 
 
I don't get any errors.... just no data in the tables.  Do I have something simple wrong?

    It looks like some sites parse while others don't. I added more sources and I'm starting to get some information in the second table.
