Okay, this should be an easy one, I hope.

I've read in an xml file with VS .NET in VB as an XML Node list, and modified some of the values, and now all I need to do is print out to a new file.

How do I print out the modified list as an XML file again, keeping the structure intact?

If anyone has any examples or suggestions, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I donno if this is what u r looking for.....I jus wrote an example where it reads the xml file  as xmlnodelist, modifies it and saves the whole structure as a different name.

 XMLcardprint.xml
---------------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<options>
    <datasetters>
       <datasetter value="EHU" />
      <datasetter value="EHU" />
  </datasetters>
</options>

  Dim m_xmld As XmlDocument= New XmlDocument()
        Dim m_nodelist As XmlNodeList
        Dim m_node As XmlNode
        m_xmld.Load("..\XMLcardprint.xml")
        Dim newnode As Xml.XmlNode
        Dim currentElement As Xml.XmlElement
        Dim currentElement1 As Xml.XmlElement
        Dim datasetterelement As Xml.XmlNodeList
        currentElement1 = m_xmld.SelectSingleNode("/options/datasetters")
        datasetterelement = currentElement1.SelectNodes("datasetter")
        For Each newnode In datasetterelement
            currentElement = CType(newnode, Xml.XmlElement)
            Dim s As String = currentElement.GetAttribute("value")
            If s = "EH" Then
                currentElement.SetAttribute("value", "EHU")
            End If
        Next
        m_xmld.Save("..\XMLcardprint1.xml")
