Here is a sample of the XML
I need to get the <Order Header> Nodes, then loop through the <Order Detal> <Line> Nodes

Using xml Reader "Using reader As XmlReader = XmlReader.Create(New StringReader(sFileContects))", i get all the header information, but cant properly parse the Line Iformation

Using LINQ "Dim xd As XDocument = XDocument.Parse(sFileContects)" I get nothing

Sorry, cant figure out how to edit my first post.

Making progress, but I am gettting all the inner nodes return as one line with this code.

        Dim xd As XDocument = XDocument.Parse(sFileContects)
        Debug.Print(GetNumElements(xd))
        For Each element As XElement In xd.Descendants("Line")
            Debug.Print(element.Value)
        Next

Got It!

        Dim xd As XDocument = XDocument.Parse(sFileContects)
        Debug.Print(GetNumElements(xd))
        For Each element As XElement In xd.Descendants("Line")
            Select Case element.Descendants("ItemType").Value
                Case "C"
                    Debug.Print("C" & element.Descendants("ItemDescription1").Value)
                Case "I"
                    Debug.Print("I" & element.Descendants("ItemNumber").Value)
                    Debug.Print("I" & element.Descendants("ItemDescription1").Value)
                    Debug.Print("I" & element.Descendants("ItemDescription2").Value)
                    Debug.Print("I" & element.Descendants("ActualSellPrice").Value)
                Case Else

            End Select
        Next
