Hi Victor;

Try this.

'' Load the XML document
Dim xdoc = XDocument.Load("Path to the document")
'' The new Node name to replace the one in the document
Dim nodeToRename As String = "TotalWeight"

'' Get a list of all the nodes to be renamed
Dim nodes = (From x In xdoc.Descendants(nodeToRename) _
             Select x).ToList()

'' Change the node name
For Each node As XElement In nodes
    node.Name = "New Node Name Here"
Next

xdoc.Save("Path to save the document to")

Open in new window
