to convert byte[] to string:

byte[] myByteArray;
System.Text.Encoding enc = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII;
string myString = enc.GetString(myByteArray);

[System.Xml.Serialization.XmlAttributeAttribute(DataType="base64Binary")]
    public byte[] InvoiceFile {
        get {
            return this.invoiceFileField;
        }
        set {
            this.invoiceFileField = value;
        }
    }
this is the the field property generated out of the given xml, will your solution fit into this?
