XML VBScript looping to get values

Jun 20 '13 at 07:35

I have found the samples very helpful in extracting values from xml documents. I am using the ActiveX, XML Parser Component. Unfortunately, I have not had success in extracting values the "material" section from the example below. Specifically, I am trying to pull out the value, <amount> value, and <value's unit value ("lb") for the two material sections. Here is an example of the expected values:

m223412, 4250, lb m532235, 4530, lb

How do I extract the value and attribute with a vbscript?
