I have changed the xml format to :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<values>
      <setting attribute = "user_last_logged_on">
            <user>xxxxx</user>
      </setting>
</values>

and the code so far is:

        Dim persist_xml_nodelist As XmlNodeList
        Dim persist_xml_doc = New XmlDocument()
        Dim persist_xml_node As XmlNode

        persist_xml_doc.Load("persisted.xml")
        persist_xml_nodelist = persist_xml_doc.SelectNodes("/values/setting[@attribute='user_last_logged_on']/user")
        For Each persist_xml_node In persist_xml_nodelist
            persist_xml_node.InnerText = cbo_Username.Text
        Next
        persist_xml_doc.Save("persisted.xml")
        Debug.Print(persist_xml_doc.InnerXml())

the debug print shows the xml updated correctly.  But the xml when I go to view it - it hasn't changed.  So something seems to be going wrong on saving :oS

Thanks in advance

Maybe the persisted.xml is opened or is readonly .... try deleting this file and use the save method with a full path to the file like ("C:\Persisted.xml")
