Private Sub createXML_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ensalada_btn.Click
        Try
            'Initialize a XmlTextWrite Object
            Dim xmlDoc As XmlDocument
            'Instantiate an xmlDocument
            xmlDoc = New XmlDocument
            'Create a XmlDeclaration & append Declaration
            Dim xmlDec As XmlDeclaration = xmlDoc.CreateXmlDeclaration("1.0", Nothing, "no")
            xmlDoc.AppendChild(xmlDec)
            'Create a root Element
            Dim rootElement As XmlElement = xmlDoc.CreateElement("Transaccion_Temp", Nothing)
            'Create First Level
            Dim elementLevelOne As XmlElement = xmlDoc.CreateElement("Order", Nothing)
            elementLevelOne.SetAttribute("id", "1")
            Dim hsAttr As New Hashtable
            hsAttr.Add("badge", "1235")
            hsAttr.Add("date", "2004/08/03")
            elementLevelOne.AppendChild(myElement(xmlDoc, "Worker", "595893", hsAttr))
            rootElement.AppendChild(elementLevelOne)

            xmlDoc.Save("c:/test1.xml")

        Catch ex As XmlException
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try


     
    End Sub

    Function myElement(ByVal xmlDocument As XmlDocument, ByVal ElementName As String, ByVal elementString As String, ByVal htAttr As Hashtable) As XmlElement
        'Add Element & Attributes to a XML Element
        Dim objElement As XmlElement = xmlDocument.CreateElement(ElementName)
        Dim enumAttr As IDictionaryEnumerator
        If Not htAttr Is Nothing And htAttr.Count <> 0 Then
            enumAttr = htAttr.GetEnumerator
            While enumAttr.MoveNext
                objElement.SetAttribute(enumAttr.Key.ToString(), enumAttr.Value.ToString())
            End While
        End If
        objElement.AppendChild(xmlDocument.CreateTextNode(elementString))
        Return objElement

What do you mean by "rewrite the same file"?

Add more nodes to the same root for example

<root>
     <node>Example1 </node>
     <node>Example2 </node>
</root>

<root>
     <node>Example1 </node>
     <node>Example2 </node>
     <node>Example3</node>
</root>

Something like insert a new record in the DB

Are you using XML as a database?

Just had to translate this from C# in place, so Apologies if there is a type or two...

Public Function DoAdd(doc as XmlDocument, keyVal as String, value as String) as XmlDocument
    Dim element as XmlElement = doc.CreateElement("node")
    element.InnerText = value
    element.SetAttribute("key", keyVal)
    Dim node as XmlNode  = doc.SelectSingleNode("root")
    If not IsNothing(node) Then
      node.AppendChild(element)
    End If
    Return doc
End Function

Public Function RemoveByKey(doc as XmlDocument, keyVal as String) as XmlDocument
     Dim removeNode as XmlNode = doc.SelectSingleNode("root/node[@key='" & keyVal & "']")
     If Not IsNothing( removeNode ) Then
          removeNode.ParentNode.RemoveChild(removeNode)
     End If
     Return doc
End Function
