I'm attempting to use the LoadXml() method of an MSXML Dom Document in an azure environment and it simply isn't working. When running on non-azure environments it works fine.
There is no dev environment for our azure server yet so I can't view the error which may be happening.

The following error is triggering: 

lnvo_log.writeerror("An error has occurred while parsing the " + ls_type + " response. " + lole_xml.parseError.srcText, this, "wf_open_iexplore():20")

So you can get error information if Load function fails (returns FALSE):


ls_errormsg = "URL: " + aole_error.url + "~r~n~r~n"
ls_errormsg += "ErrorCode: " + string (aole_error.errorcode) + "~r~n"
ls_errormsg += "Reason: " + aole_error.reason + "~r~n~r~n"
ls_errormsg += "Position: " + string (aole_error.filepos) + &
" Row: " + string (aole_error.line) + &
" Col: " + string (aole_error.linepos) + "~r~n"
ls_errormsg += "Src: " + aole_error.srcText


aole_error is in this case a parameter (OLEObject) for an error function. Pass lole_xml.parseError as parameter.

I'm sorry, I don't understand. Could you explain in more detail

what aole_error is supposed to be and how it works?

I have a function of_showxmlerror(oleobject aole_error) with this code (an a litte more).

To show the error add this to your code:

IF NOT lb_status THEN of_showoleerror (lole_xml.parseError)

Hi Jacob;

  One thing that "might" work in order to get more relevant information on the error "An error has occurred while parsing ..." that I have used in the past, is to wrap your code block in a TRY..CATCH statement. The "Exception" object after an OLE Error can often contain more detailed information in order to determine the more exact cause of what the OLE Sever APP is complaining about.


Regards ... Chris

Works only if it throws an exception. In this case catch OLERuntimeError exception.
