I've had to do this sort of thing with JSON.  From the question I'm spit balling here but I would created a class hierarchy to manage building the the message. The structure of XML lends itself to that nicely.  Each class<like message> would now the tags it would use to wrap itself as well as each field. An taking it in chunks helped me to work out the user interface.

<Message> cMessage
   <Request> cRequest
      <Detail> cDetail
         <TranType>Credit</TranType> member
         <TranAction>Auth</TranAction>member
         <Amount>19.99</Amount>
         <CurrencyCode>840</CurrencyCode>
      </Detail>

Hi  TAPAN;

The XML that you posted has no node with the name Response and also has no root node. Which part do you want to get?

Hi TAPAN;

The following code snippet will do what you are looking for.

// Create the XML document declaration
XDocument xdoc = new XDocument(
                     new XDeclaration("1.0", "utf-8", "yes")
                 );

// Add the root node to the XML string data and create the XML elements 
XElement response = XElement.Parse("<Resppnse>" + clResponse + "</Resppnse>");
// Add all the elements to the document
xdoc.Add(response);
// If you want to save the XML to disk do the following
// changing the path and file name
xdoc.Save(@"C:\Working Directory\response.xml");
