Below is the the input xml and the desired output xml, and the attached code to read the inputxml. It is highly appreciated if you can modify the attached code to get the desired output xml and save it .

<?xml version="1.0"?>

Desired ouput xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
      <SiteVisits Read="True">
        <Country CountryName="USA">

        End If
         ' Get the root of the XML tree.
        Set oRoot = oDoc.documentElement
         ' Go through all children of the root.
