Quick XML Q...

can someone tell me and correct what I am doing wrong here:
Set objNode = objXML.SelectSingleNode("//Event[@ID = '" & intEventID & "']//User[@FNAME = '"&trim(strFName)&"'][@LNAME = '"&trim(strLName)&"']")
                  objNode.Attributes.Item(5).text = "1"
Set objNode = Nothing


I'm trying to set PAID to = 1  (which happens to be the 0 based 5 attribute of the User node)

I've verified that strFName, strLName, and intEventID are correct, and I can in fact retrieve the data from the node like this, however I am trying to update an attribute, and it simply does not update.  No errors either

objNode is no longer a part of objXML. You need to re-integrate objNode into objXML. Easy way to do this is to delete the node from objXML and then append objNode back into the right spot in objXML if you need to do it the way you are showing... or...
objXML.SelectSingleNode("//Event[@ID = '" & intEventID & "']//User[@FNAME = '"&trim(strFName)&"'][@LNAME = '"&trim(strLName)&"']").Attributes.Item(5).text = "1"

objXML.async = False
blnFileExist = objXML.load(xmlPath)
objXML.SelectSingleNode("//Event[@ID = '" & intEventID & "']//User[@FNAME = '"&trim(strFName)&"'][@LNAME = '"&trim(strLName)&"']").Attributes.Item(5).text = "1"


doesn't update either

Dont forget:
xmlDoc.Save(xmlPath)
Since you are just editing a file in memory, you do need to save it to disk if you want your file updated.
