I am using to read an xml file with basic user information.  I want to be able to write back to a new xml file, and maybe do some logic like bind firstName and surName elements together.

Any clues of writing, using the elements already obtained from the read function?


Public Sub MigrateFromOldToNew()


        Dim xmlFilePath As String = HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("Students.xml")


            Using reader As XmlReader = XmlReader.Create(xmlFilePath)

                While (reader.Read)

                    If (reader.NodeType = XmlNodeType.Element) Then

                        If (reader.Name = "StudentId") Then

                            studentId = reader.ReadInnerXml

                        End If

                        If (reader.Name = "StudentName") Then

                            studentName = reader.ReadInnerXml

                        End If

                        If (reader.Name = "StudentSurname") Then

                            studentSurname = reader.ReadInnerXml

                        End If

                    End If

                End While

            End Using

        Catch ex As Exception

        End Try

    End Sub
