XML CreateElement

Hi,

I have an existing script that outputs an XML file, I need to alter the header and add some elements, I need some pointers please, examples below:

This is the header code:
$dom = new DOMDocument('1.0', 'utf-8');
 $element = $dom->createElement('DTD_ORDER');

This outputs:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<DTD_ORDER>*******************</DTD_ORDER>

What I need to do is add in some elements so result looks like:

<SyncSalesOrder xmlns:v2="http://xmlns.oracle.com/EnterpriseObjects/Core/Common/V2" xmlns:v1="http://xmlns.oracle.com/EnterpriseObjects/Core/EBO/PickList/V1" releaseID="9.0" xmlns:wsa="http://www.w3.org/2005/08/addressing" xmlns="http://www.openapplications.org/oagis/9"><ApplicationArea><Sender><LogicalID>5029125000000</LogicalID><ComponentID></ComponentID><TaskID>SalesOrder</TaskID><ReferenceID>1</ReferenceID></Sender><CreationDateTime>2014-11-04T18:53:51+10:30</CreationDateTime></ApplicationArea><DataArea><Sync><ActionCriteria><ActionExpression actionCode="Sync"/></ActionCriteria></Sync><DTD_ORDER>*************</DTD_ORDER></DataArea></SyncSalesOrder>


Where
The ReferenceId should be the transmission number(date/hour as 0711201408)
The CreationDateTime should be the transmission date and time

Getting bogged down in this, any help appreciated

Thanks

This should work for you:
$dom = new DOMDocument('1.0', 'utf-8');

    $SyncSalesOrder = $dom->createElementNS('http://www.openapplications.org/oagis/9', 'SyncSalesOrder');
        $SyncSalesOrder->setAttribute('releaseID', '9.0');
        $SyncSalesOrder->setAttributeNS('http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/', 'xmlns:v2', 'http://xmlns.oracle.com/EnterpriseObjects/Core/Common/V2');
        $SyncSalesOrder->setAttributeNS('http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/', 'xmlns:v1', 'http://xmlns.oracle.com/EnterpriseObjects/Core/EBO/PickList/V1' );
        $SyncSalesOrder->setAttributeNS('http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/', 'xmlns:wsa', 'http://www.w3.org/2005/08/addressing');

        $ApplicationArea = $dom->createElement('ApplicationArea');
            $Sender = $dom->createElement('Sender');
                $LogicalID = $dom->createElement('LogicalID', '5029125000000');
                $Sender->appendChild($LogicalID);

                $ComponentID = $dom->createElement('ComponentID');
                $Sender->appendChild($ComponentID);

                $TaskID = $dom->createElement('TaskID', 'SalesOrder');
                $Sender->appendChild($TaskID);

                $ReferenceID = $dom->createElement('ReferenceID', date('mdYH')); // The ReferenceId should be the transmission number(date/hour as 0711201408)
                $Sender->appendChild($ReferenceID);
            $ApplicationArea->appendChild($Sender);

            $CreationDateTime = $dom->createElement('CreationDateTime', date('c')); // The CreationDateTime should be the transmission date and time
            $ApplicationArea->appendChild($CreationDateTime);
        $SyncSalesOrder->appendChild($ApplicationArea);

        $DataArea = $dom->createElement('DataArea');
            $Sync = $dom->createElement('Sync');
                $ActionCriteria = $dom->createElement('ActionCriteria');
                    $ActionExpression = $dom->createElement('ActionExpression');
                        $ActionExpression->setAttribute('actionCode', 'Sync');
                    $ActionCriteria->appendChild($ActionExpression);
                $Sync->appendChild($ActionCriteria);
            $DataArea->appendChild($Sync);

            $element = $dom->createElement('DTD_ORDER', '*************');
            $DataArea->appendChild($element);
        $SyncSalesOrder->appendChild($DataArea);
    $dom->appendChild($SyncSalesOrder);

Hi,
Thanks very much, learnt a lot by seeing the code in place, php.net is good, but sometimes needs 'real world' examples, very good solution.
