Help with appending multiple data element from File2.xml to file1.xml

Hi,

Hi,


If file1.xml contains data in Part A in file contains data in Part B. How do append the data from file2 to file 1 and save it as file3.xml?

Part A:

<Root>
<Table1>
<SN>10411</SN>
<NSC>ITEMA</NSC>
</Table1>
<Table1>
<SN>10412</SN>
<NSC>ITEMB</NSC>
</Table1>
<Table1>
<SN>10421</SN>
<NSC>ITEMC</NSC>
</Table1>
<Table1>
<SN>10521</SN>
<NSC>ITEMD</NSC>
</Table1>
<Table1>
<SN>10611</SN>
<NSC>ITEME</NSC>
</Table1>
</Root>


Part B:

<Root>
<Table2>
<RIC><RIC>
<NOP></NOP>
<FIF><FIF>
</Table2>
</Root>

Desired Solution:

File3.xml

<Root>
<Table1>
<SN>10411</SN>
<NSC>ITEMA</NSC>
<RIC><RIC>
<NOP></NOP>
<FIF><FIF>
</Table1>
<Table1>
<SN>10412</SN>
<NSC>ITEMB</NSC>
<RIC><RIC>
<NOP></NOP>
<FIF><FIF>
</Table1>
<Table1>
<SN>10421</SN>
<NSC>ITEMC</NSC>
<RIC><RIC>
<NOP></NOP>
<FIF><FIF>
</Table1>
<Table1>
<SN>10521</SN>
<NSC>ITEMD</NSC>
<RIC><RIC>
<NOP></NOP>
<FIF><FIF>
</Table1>
<Table1>
<SN>10611</SN>
<NSC>ITEME</NSC>
<RIC><RIC>
<NOP></NOP>
<FIF><FIF>
</Table1>
</Root>

Thanks,

Victor

Hi Victor;

See if this is what you are looking for.

' Open the two XML documents
Dim file1Xml = XDocument.Load("C:\Working Directory\file1.xml")
Dim file2Xml = XDocument.Load("C:\Working Directory\file2.xml")

' Get the nodes to be appended to the elements of file1.xml
Dim file2Elements = From f2 In file2Xml.Descendants("Table2").Elements()
                    Select f2
' Get the modes to be appended too.
Dim file3Xml = From f1 In file1Xml.Descendants("Table1")
               Select f1
               
' Append the nodes               
For Each node In file3Xml
   node.Add(file2Elements)
Next

' Save as file3.xml
file1Xml.Save("C:\Working Directory\File3.xml")

Open in new window

Hi Victor;

In your example you change the parent node Table2 to Table1 and add that as the first child node under the root node, is that what you want?

In the Part B is the parent node always going to be Table2 and in Part A will it always be Table1?

Hi,

Yes to both of your questions. The table names are not very important just using thoses as examples, will use different ones in my project. Many goal is to append the data from file2.xml to all the records in file1.xml.

Thanks,
