XML without SQL?

I know it is possible to access an xml file without using sql...I have done it with basic forms a number of times.

But my big picture goal is to make xml files be my file format for the application I am creating.  Which means that xml files will have a lot of data and sections.  I am trying to figure out how multiple forms with different information and in use at different times can save to the same xml file?  I desperately want to avoid using any servers as I want this application to be 100% stand alone.  So the application is standalone...and one xml file contains all info for a project within the application.  Make sense?  Thanks for your help.

you dont need sql for XML

You can read and write xml files using the XML namespace.

You can even query it using XPath
