Some will have 1 child node and others will have mulitple there is no set limit

here is a example of the section in question

  <Unit ManufactId="8" Id="8"  Connection="2">
    <IT ITId="8" Color="Yellow" />
    <IT ITId="24" Color="Yellow" />
  </Unit>
  <Unit ManufactId="1" Id="1"  Connection="3">
    <IT ITId="1" Color="Black" />
    <IT ITId="2" Color="Black" />
    <IT ITId="3" Color="Black" />
    <IT ITId="4" Color="Black" />
  </Unit>
 
This is what I had in code but it will no longer work.

         //read the document and pull the node into the Listview
         foreach (XmlNode xmlNodeType in xmlDoc.SelectNodes("//Unit"))
         {
            //read the document and fill the Connections listview
            string ManufactId = xmlNodeType.Attributes["ManufactId"].InnerText;
            string Id= xmlNodeType.Attributes["Id"].InnerText;
            string Connection= xmlNodeType.Attributes["Connection"].InnerText;
            string ITId = xmlNodeType.FirstChild.Attributes["ITId "].InnerText;
         
            if (xmlNodeType.HasChildNodes)
            {
               if (xmlNodeType.ChildNodes.Count == 1)
               {
                  string Color = xmlNodeType.FirstChild.Attributes["Color"].InnerText;

                  ListViewItem item = listViewF.Items.Add(ManufactId);
                  item.SubItems.Add(Id);
                  item.SubItems.Add(Connection);
                  item.SubItems.Add(ITId);
                  item.SubItems.Add(Color);
               }
               else
                  if (xmlNodeType.ChildNodes.Count == 2)
               {
                  string Color = xmlNodeType.FirstChild.Attributes["Color"].InnerText;
                  string NextITId = xmlNodeType.FirstChild.NextSibling.Attributes["ITId"].InnerText;
                  string NextColor = xmlNodeType.FirstChild.NextSibling.Attributes["Color"].InnerText;

                  ListViewItem item = listViewF.Items.Add(ManufactId );
                  item.SubItems.Add(Id);
                  item.SubItems.Add(Connection);
                  item.SubItems.Add(ITId);
                  item.SubItems.Add(Color);

                  ListViewItem items = listViewF.Items.Add(ManufactId);
                  items.SubItems.Add(Id);
                  items.SubItems.Add(Connection);
                  items.SubItems.Add(NextITId);
                  items.SubItems.Add(NextColor);
               }
            }
         }

I'm not sure I understand your question, but I note one thing: in the line
string ITId = xmlNodeType.FirstChild.Attributes["ITId "].InnerText
you've got a space in the "ITId " that will make the code fail.

You should be able to loop through all the children using a second "foreach" loop:

         //read the document and pull the node into the Listview
         foreach (XmlNode xmlNodeType in xmlDoc.SelectNodes("//Unit"))
         {
            //read the document and fill the Connections listview
            string ManufactId = xmlNodeType.Attributes["ManufactId"].InnerText;
            string Id= xmlNodeType.Attributes["Id"].InnerText;
            string Connection= xmlNodeType.Attributes["Connection"].InnerText;
            string ITId = xmlNodeType.FirstChild.Attributes["ITId "].InnerText;

            If (xmlNodeType.HasChildNodes)
            {
                 foreach (XmlNode child in xmlNodeType.ChildNodes)
                 {
                      // etc, etc
                 }
            }

How about this:

         //read the document and pull the node into the Listview
         foreach (XmlNode xmlNodeType in xmlDoc.SelectNodes("//Unit"))
         {
            //read the document and fill the Connections listview
            string ManufactId = xmlNodeType.Attributes["ManufactId"].InnerText;
            string Id= xmlNodeType.Attributes["Id"].InnerText;
            string Connection= xmlNodeType.Attributes["Connection"].InnerText;
            foreach (XmlNode xmlNodeIT in xmlNodeType.SelectNodes("IT"))
            {
              string ITId = xmlNodeIT.Attributes["ITId "].InnerText;
              string Color = xmlNodeIT.Attributes["Color"].InnerText;

              ListViewItem item = listViewF.Items.Add(ManufactId );
              item.SubItems.Add(Id);
              item.SubItems.Add(Connection);
              item.SubItems.Add(ITId);
              item.SubItems.Add(Color);

              }
           
         }
