Xml help needed

Hi,

I wanted to ask.. if I have an xml file..

And the file has say 1 root (of course) and maybe 10 child elements/nodes.

I want to output the first child elements values (XmlText)  if the user clicks a button.

So on an html form, I want to hit submit and display the first nodes value

The next time I hit submit, I want to display the next nodes values

Sort of like in a line, you come to our site, hit a button and you get the values only in node 1

Next person comes to site, hits same button, they get the values from node 2, etc, etc

Each node has unique values so two users will never get the same values if done correctly.

How can this be done?

In a sense if you were to compare my example to a normal database...  Its like hitting a button and getting the first record in the db, hitting it again, you get the 2nd record in db, etc

Hope that makes sense....

HI,

I ended up getting the solution, the solution was more related to the read, parsing, and writing back to the xml file...

But involved looping, and using XmlElemNew to create new elements.

Thanks
