Here are some examples from MSXML parser documentation..

--------- Adding a node ------------
Dim xmlDoc As New Msxml2.DOMDocument40
Dim root As IXMLDOMElement
Dim newNode As IXMLDOMNode

xmlDoc.async = False
xmlDoc.Load ("books.xml")
Set root = xmlDoc.documentElement
MsgBox root.xml
Set newNode = xmlDoc.createNode(NODE_ELEMENT, "VIDEOS", "")
root.appendChild newNode

---- Replacing a node--
Dim xmlDoc As New Msxml2.DOMDocument40
Dim root As IXMLDOMElement
Dim newElem As IXMLDOMElement
xmlDoc.async = False
xmlDoc.Load ("books.xml")
Set root = xmlDoc.documentElement
Set newElem = xmlDoc.createElement("PAGES")
root.childNodes.Item(1).replaceChild newElem, root.childNodes.Item(1).childNodes.Item(0)

-------- Removing ---
Dim xmlDoc As New Msxml2.DOMDocument40
Dim root As IXMLDOMElement
Dim currNode As IXMLDOMNode
Dim oldChild As IXMLDOMNode
xmlDoc.async = False
xmlDoc.Load ("books.xml")
Set root = xmlDoc.documentElement
Set currNode = root.childNodes.Item(1)
Set oldChild = currNode.removeChild(currNode.childNodes.Item(1))

davesu,
ASP is not a language. ITs a server side framework for parsing the scripts or code inclised between <% %> tags. Ultimately you will need a scripting language like VBScript or JavaScript to implement the XML functionlaity you are looking for. If you just put the <% %> aroudd this code, it becomes ASP page.

<%
Dim xmlDoc As New Msxml2.DOMDocument40
Dim root As IXMLDOMElement
Dim newNode As IXMLDOMNode

xmlDoc.async = False
xmlDoc.Load ("books.xml")
Set root = xmlDoc.documentElement
MsgBox root.xml
Set newNode = xmlDoc.createNode(NODE_ELEMENT, "VIDEOS", "")
root.appendChild newNode
%>

Etc...
