I need to add a record to my XML file that links the XML file to the XSL file i created.. I have the load and save part, but couldnt find anything on how to add an XSL definition to the exsisting XML file.

        xDoc = New XmlDocument
        xDoc.Load("C:\Documents and Settings\jwinn\My Documents\XML\QBResponse4.xml")


        xDoc.Save("C:\tesing\myData.xml")

Not quite sure what you mean. Do you want to programmatically add:

    <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="yourStylesheet.xsl"?>

?

Something like the following shoud do the trick:

        Dim doc As New XmlDocument()
        doc.LoadXml("<root><child>Wibble</child></root>")

        doc.InsertBefore(doc.CreateProcessingInstruction("xml-stylesheet", "type=""text/xsl"" href=""mytransform.xsl"""), doc.DocumentElement)

        MessageBox.Show(doc.OuterXml)
