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?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
