I am trying to get my webpage to take data from an XML file, and insert that data into 6 different drop down type menus. I am using ASP pages. With some basic HTML, and VB on the site. Does anyone have any idea of where i can start from. I have looked at several websites but don't really see anything of this sort.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Your best option would probably be to use .NET if you can. This may provide some answers:

This might also solve your problem:

If not:
Google search: .net menus xml

About 233,000 results, but you'll probably find a good answer on the first few pages. The ones I linked to were the first two results.

You should be able to parse the xml file and make whatever the heck you want to make--including a drop down menu.

Using the Microsoft.XMLHTTP object for ASP (not .NET), you can build a recordset from an XML file, build an XML from a database, whatever you need. It's a little complicated at first, but it's really pretty cool once you get the hang of it. I've used it in the past to do database syncing between remote databases via HTTP.
