Search an XML document for a specific vaule and the delete or move the file


I'm pretty new to the VB scripting language but have been able to plod along and get a few things done, but I'm not stumped??

I have an XML file which when copies into the sourcedir should be acted upon but it is not!

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<EquipmentSummary>Unit calibrated all ok. No problems encountered.</EquipmentSummary>

I have an XML file details below, which monitors the sourcedir for files and either moves them or deletes them dependent upon the value of CalibrationPassed. Now I now It's opened the correct file as my message box displays it but it does not seem to read any values from the XML file which is why I think the file is not moved or deleted.

Any Help would be fantastic.

sourceDir = ("c:\PPCC\Files\In")
backupDir = ("c:\PPCC\Files\Out")

Set xmlDoc = CreateObject( "Microsoft.XMLDOM" )
xmlDoc.Async = "False"

Set xPE = Nothing

Set fso = CreateObject( "Scripting.FileSystemObject" )
Set oXml=CreateObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.3.0")
oXml.async= Flase
'Set oXml = CreateObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument")
' oXml.async = False

Set FLD = FSO.GetFolder(sourceDir)

'Loop through the folder And Get the file names
For Each Fil In FLD.Files
FileName = Fil.Name
TotalFile = sourceDir & "\" & FileName


Set SerialNo = oXml.selectSingleNode("InstrumentInfo:SerialNo")
Set CalibrationPassed = oXml.selectsinglenode ("//CalibrationPassed")

MsgBox "Hello There!" & TotalFile

If CalibrationPassed = 1 Then

Set fso = CreateObject( "Scripting.FileSystemObject" )

sSerialNo = sourceDir & "\iCAM" & SerialNo & ".XML"
If (fso.FileExists(sSerialNo)) Then
fso.DeleteFile sSerialNo
fso.MoveFile sSerialNo, backupDir
End If
End If
