Help with creating xml fles from one xml files

Hi,

How do you create multiple xml files based on a data element?  For example if I have the following xml file:

Final.xml
  <Root>
	  <Table_NSC>
		  <ID> 1</ID>
			<CTRY>BEL</CTRY>
		  <NSC></NSC>
	  </Table_NSC>
	  <Table_NSC>
		  <ID> 2</ID>
			<CTRY>CAN</CTRY>
		  <NSC></NSC>
	  </Table_NSC>
	  <Table_NSC>
		  <ID> 3</ID>
			<CTRY>CAN</CTRY>
		  <NSC></NSC>
	  </Table_NSC>
	  <Table_NSC>
		  <ID> 4</ID>
			<CTRY>DEU</CTRY>
		  <NSC></NSC>
	  </Table_NSC>
  </Root>

Hi Victor, please try this:
Imports System.Xml

Public Class Form1

    Const C_SPLIT As String = "CTRY"

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim objXml As New XmlDocument, objDict As New Dictionary(Of String, XmlDocument)
        objXml.Load("Final.xml")
        For Each objSub As XmlElement In objXml.DocumentElement.ChildNodes
            Dim strSplit = objSub.SelectSingleNode(C_SPLIT).InnerText
            Dim objNewXml As XmlDocument
            If Not objDict.ContainsKey(strSplit) Then
                objNewXml = New XmlDocument
                objNewXml.AppendChild(objNewXml.CreateElement(objXml.DocumentElement.Name))
                objDict.Add(strSplit, objNewXml)
            Else
                objNewXml = objDict.Item(strSplit)
            End If
            objNewXml.DocumentElement.AppendChild(objNewXml.ImportNode(objSub, True))
        Next
        For Each strSub As String In objDict.Keys
            objDict.Item(strSub).Save(strSub & ".xml")
        Next
    End Sub
End Class
