Dim doc As New XmlDocument
        doc.Load("XMLFile1.xml")

        Dim ele As XmlElement = doc.CreateElement("class")
        Dim class2 As XmlAttribute = doc.CreateAttribute("name")
        Dim id2 As XmlAttribute = doc.CreateAttribute("id")
        class2.Value = "class2"
        id2.Value = "2"
        ele.Attributes.Append(class2)
        ele.Attributes.Append(id2)
        doc.DocumentElement.AppendChild(ele)
        doc.Save("XmlFile1.xml")

XMLFile1.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Data>
  <class name ="English" id= "class1">
    <studentinfo id="1">
      <studentname>Anderson</studentname>
      <studentid>1111</studentid>
    </studentinfo>
  </class>

this is the format i have
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<catalog>
  <optgroup label="Bakery">
    <option value="111">Chicken</option>
  </optgroup>
  <optgroup label="BBQ">
    <option value="222">Fried</option>
  </optgroup>
</catalog>
how do i read it so that i would have label in the select list and then value and text in item?

i have this and dont know where to go from there.
 For Each productnode In nodelist
            If productnode.Attributes.Count > 0 Then
                For Each productsubnode In productnode.ChildNodes
                    'add to child list box                    
                    ListBox_Section1.Items.Add(New ListItem(productsubnode.Name.ToString, productsubnode.Value.ToString))
                Next
            End If
        Next

Dim groupNodes As XmlNodeList = doc.SelectNodes("/catalog/optgroup")
        Dim output As New System.Text.StringBuilder
        output.Append("<Select>")
        For Each node As XmlNode In groupNodes
            output.AppendFormat("<option group=""{0}"" />", node.Attributes(0).Value)
            Dim students As XmlNodeList = node.ChildNodes()
            For Each snode As XmlNode In students
                output.AppendFormat("<option value=""{0}"" >{1}</option>", snode.Attributes(0).Value, snode.InnerText)
            Next
