1. To create XML dynamically with some data and store them in any specified directory in the web server.
2. To retrieve data from any specified xml and display them using HTML elements for better GUI.  

Please answer them with sample code asap. Thanks.

Dim xmlDoc

Set xmlDoc = server.CreateObject("msXML.DOMDocument")
xmlDoc.async = False
xmlDoc.load("c:\text.xml")

if xmlDoc.parseError.errorcode <> 0 Then
      response.write "Error Code : " & xmlDoc.parseError.errorcode & "<br>"
      response.write "Error Reason : " & xmlDoc.parseError.reason & "<br>"
      response.write "Error Line : " & xmlDoc.parseError.line & "<br>"
      response.write "Error FilePos : " & xmlDoc.parseError.filepos & "<br>"
      response.write "Error Source : " & xmlDoc.parseError.srcText & "<br>"
      response.write "Error URL : " & xmlDoc.parseError.url & "<br>"
end if

Response.Write(aTree(xmlDoc.documentElement))

function aTree(pNode)
      for each atr in pNode.childNodes
            aTree = aTree & atr.text&"<br>"

This would return the first node

xmlDoc.documentElement.childnodes(0).text

so this would get the 3rd element and make it a HTML Title.

<h1><%=xmlDoc.documentElement.childnodes(2).text%></h1>

Bit more detail on attributes

This allows you to find a single node by reference the id in the xml file this example finds id = 2

<%

Dim xmlDoc, i
Set xmlDoc = server.CreateObject("msXML.DOMDocument")

Set oRoot = xmlDoc.createElement("Test")
Set xmlDoc.documentElement = oRoot


for i = 1 to 5
     Set oElement = xmlDoc.createElement("NUMBER")
     
     oElement.nodeTypedValue = "text"&i
     Set objAttrib = xmlDoc.createAttribute("id")
      objAttrib.Text = i
      oElement.Attributes.setNamedItem objAttrib
      oRoot.appendChild oElement

next

xmlDoc.Save("c:\text.xml")


Set xmlDoc = server.CreateObject("msXML.DOMDocument")
xmlDoc.async = False
xmlDoc.load("c:\text.xml")

if xmlDoc.parseError.errorcode <> 0 Then
      response.write "Error Code : " & xmlDoc.parseError.errorcode & "<br>"
      response.write "Error Reason : " & xmlDoc.parseError.reason & "<br>"
      response.write "Error Line : " & xmlDoc.parseError.line & "<br>"
      response.write "Error FilePos : " & xmlDoc.parseError.filepos & "<br>"
      response.write "Error Source : " & xmlDoc.parseError.srcText & "<br>"
      response.write "Error URL : " & xmlDoc.parseError.url & "<br>"
end if

Response.Write(xmlDoc.documentElement.selectSingleNode("NUMBER[@id='2']").text)

%>
