In vb script / classic asp, How do I make it so I can append xml documents that are in an array to another xml Document as follows:

Set xmlDoc = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")  
Set objRoot =  xmlDoc.createElement("runners")  :xmlDoc.appendChild objRoot  

Set objIntro =   xmlDoc.createProcessingInstruction ("xml","version='1.0'")  
xmlDoc.insertBefore objIntro,xmlDoc.childNodes(0)


for c__ = 1 to ubound(c_)
        'xarray is an array of xmldom documents
      objroot.appendchild xarray(c__)

next

Here is some code I tested in VBA (because it's easier to debug than classic ASP).

Note that to me this doesn't make much sense without knowing what's in your arrays so I assumed they are the same length and there's nothing in array element 0 (looking at your for-loop code).
Dim c_(2), xarray(2)
Set xarray(1) = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
xarray(1).LoadXML "<root1><testdata1/></root1>"
Set xarray(2) = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
xarray(2).LoadXML "<root2><testdata2/></root2>"

Set xmldoc = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
Set objroot = xmldoc.createElement("runners"): xmldoc.appendchild objroot

Set objIntro = xmldoc.createProcessingInstruction("xml", "version='1.0'")
xmldoc.InsertBefore objIntro, xmldoc.ChildNodes(0)


For c__ = 1 To UBound(c_)
        'xarray is an array of xmldom documents
      objroot.appendchild xarray(c__).DocumentElement

Next

Open in new window

*edit: note the added ".DocumentElement"

result:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<runners><root1><testdata1/></root1><root2><testdata2/></root2></runners>

Open in new window
