Is it possible to using the appendchild method to load and external xml file to apend to the XML node
we specify in the program? Currently the normal way to do that is to create appropriate element, createTextNode
assign text to the element and finally using the node appendchild method to append the new record in.

 xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject('MSXML2.DOMDocument');
 xmlDoc.async = false;
 xmlDoc.load("tree/tree.xml");
 entity = xmlDoc.documentElement.selectSingleNode("//entity[@id='" + parentEntityID +"']");
 newEntity = xmlDoc.createElement("entity");
 attribute = xmlDoc.createAttribute("id");
 attribute.text = document.uniqueID;
 newEntity.attributes.setNamedItem(attribute);
 element = xmlDoc.createElement(entity.childNodes(0).baseName);
 element.text = '123';
 newEntity.appendChild(element);
 element = xmlDoc.createElement(entity.childNodes(1).baseName);
 element.text = 'images/paper.gif';
 newEntity.appendChild(element);
 element = xmlDoc.createElement(entity.childNodes(2).baseName);
 element.text = 'images/paper.gif';
 newEntity.appendChild(element);
 entity.selectSingleNode("contents").appendChild(newEntity);


is it another way where i can load the external XML file to append to the node in entity?

using MSXML you can use :

xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject('MSXML2.DOMDocument');
xmlDoc.loadXML("<ROOT><CHILD>text</CHILD></ROOT>");

Then you can append this object :
xmlDoc.documentElement , to some other element.

what avner has said is correct and straightforward. Is there anything else that you may need avner to clarify?
