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 which has only one row at the moment.
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:
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?
