Hi Victor;

A little bit more information is needed to answer this question.

Can you post the structure of the XML document?
Is the XML document in a String variable in your code or in a file on your system?

Hi vcharles;

Here is a way to do what you want.

Imports System.Xml.Linq 

' XML as a string in code
Dim xmlStr = "<Root><Row><Table_ID>1</Table_ID><Item1></Item1><Item2></Item2></Row><Row><Table_ID>2</Table_ID><Item1></Item1><Item2></Item2></Row><Row><Table_ID>3</Table_ID><Item1></Item1><Item2></Item2></Row></Root>"
' Convert string to XML document
Dim xdoc = XElement.Parse(xmlStr)
' Get list of nodes to be replaced 
Dim rows = xdoc.Descendants("Row").ToList()
' Create the new Country node with the children of the old Row node
' and replace in original XML document
For i As Integer = 0 To rows.Count() - 1
    Dim newElement = New XElement("Country", rows(i).Elements())
    rows(i).ReplaceWith(newElement)
Next

' Convert the modified XML back to a string
Dim newXMLStr = xdoc.ToString()
