I developed a xml file in visualbasic and my code looks like this:

 ofcourse i declared all the variables, here i'm not showing.

    Set objperson = m_objDOMpeople.createElement("PERSON")
     m_objDOMpeople.appendChild objperson

  'to this create element (objPerson), add its childNodes
  Set objNewchild = m_objDOMpeople.createElement("NAME")
  objNewchild.Text = B_Name
  objperson.appendChild objNewchild
     
 Set objNewchild = m_objDOMpeople.createElement("ADDRESS")
  objNewchild.Text = B_Address
  objperson.appendChild objNewchild


I'm getting resulting xml file as:

<Person>
<Name>sdfdsf</Name>
<ADDRESS>1232,sdfsdfs</ADDRESS>
</Person>

What I want is how to create a xml tag in the middle like:

<Person>
<Name>sdfdsf</Name>
<ADDRESS Detail>
<ADDRESS>1232,sdfsdfs</ADDRESS>
</ADDRESS Detail>
</Person>

If you observe both codes you will see difference, i want to acheive the second one. I tried several ways but it is not working.

The main problem is that "ADDRESS Detail" is an invalid element name.  So if we change that to "ADDRESS_Detail" the following code should achieve the desired result:

Set objperson = m_objDOMpeople.createElement("PERSON")
m_objDOMpeople.appendChild objperson

'to this create element (objPerson), add its childNodes
Set objNewchild = m_objDOMpeople.createElement("NAME")
objNewchild.Text = B_Name
objperson.appendChild objNewchild

'DIM objNewAddress the same way as objNewChild,
'and add the following two lines
Set objNewAddress = m_objDOMpeople.createElement("ADDRESS_Detail")
objPerson.appendChild objNewAddress
     
Set objNewchild = m_objDOMpeople.createElement("ADDRESS")
objNewchild.Text = B_Address
objperson.appendChild objNewAddress   'Changed this line

Hope this helps,
Anthony

It didn't work like that i got the result like this:

<PERSON>
<NAME>666666</NAME>
  <TELEPHONE>45645654645</TELEPHONE>
  <ADDRESS_DETAIL />
  <ADDRESS />
</PERSON>

i tried the same way you said, i declared the objnewaddress as ixmldomelement same way as objnewchild.

I'm not getting any value for address too, it was coming before but now not coming. The other thing is there is no closing tag for Address_detail and it shows<address_detail/>, i don't no why it is showing like that.

Please correct me.

Thanks
Vijay

You are absolutely right.  It was a typo on my part:

The line:
objperson.appendChild objNewAddress   'Changed this line

Should read:
objNewAddress.appendChild objNewChild   'Changed this line

Sorry about that,
Anthony
