<C filename="00013024228c4e24a79bae959588acd4" parents="9daf7c70ac37479b8f91ef7bd08e07e6" DateModified="1217355187" taxonomyId="6aa742c4edff43a798c9067a2a4e223c" typeId="514044723" typeName="Answer" title="No" description=""><Conclusion /><Ps><P name="Approved" value="true" /><P name="Global or Country" value="Global" /><P name="Display on Questionaire" value="EA" /><P name="SL/SSL Owner /Maintained" value="02" /><P name="Sort Key" value="125" /><P name="Unique Number" value="963478" /></Ps></C>

<C filename="00013024228c4e24a79bae959588acd4" parents="9daf7c70ac37479b8f91ef7bd08e07e6" DateModified="1217355187" taxonomyId="6aa742c4edff43a798c9067a2a4e223c" typeId="514044723" typeName="Answer" title="No" description=""  Modified="xyz ">

Well the way to do this properly is to create an XML DOM and using the LoadXML() method to load the string you have read from the database into it.

You now need to select the "C" node like

    cNode = xmldom.selectSingleNode('/C');

and then create a new attribute node with

   attrNode = xmldom.CreateAttribute('Modified');

and then set it's value :-

    attrNode.Value = today();  // or whatever

now add the new attribute to the attribute of the C node

    cNode.attributes.setNamedItem(attrNode);

and then save the document into a string

    str = xmldom.xml

and then write the string back into the database.
