Help with appending values in data element of xml file using VB.NET

Hi,

How do you add 130500 in front of NSC data element of an xml file? For example if I have the following xml file.

<Root>
<AOP5>
<ID></ID>
<SN></SN>
<NSC>8970</NSC>
</AOP5>
<AOP5>
<ID></ID>
<SN></SN>
<NSC>8789</NSC>
</AOP5>
<AOP5>
<ID></ID>
<SN></SN>
<NSC>7865</NSC>
</AOP5>
</Root>

How do I obtain:

<Root>
<AOP5>
<ID></ID>
<SN></SN>
<NSC>1305008970</NSC>
</AOP5>
<AOP5>
<ID></ID>
<SN></SN>
<NSC>1305008789</NSC>
</AOP5>
<AOP5>
<ID></ID>
<SN></SN>
<NSC>1305007865</NSC>
</AOP5>
</Root>

Thanks,

Victor

It's not that much different in this scenario, but here it is:
        Dim dom As XDocument = XDocument.Load("C:\temp\test.xml")

        Dim nodes As IEnumerable(Of XElement) = dom.Descendants("NSC")
        For Each node As XElement In nodes
            node.SetValue("130500" + node.Value)
        Next

        dom.Save("C:\temp\test.xml")

Open in new window

It would be slicker in C# because there is a foreach extension method, but hey ho!

Old school way would be:
        Dim dom As New XmlDocument
        dom.Load("C:\temp\test.xml")

        Dim nodes As XmlNodeList = dom.SelectNodes("//NSC")
        For Each node As XmlNode In nodes
            node.InnerText = "130500" & node.InnerText
        Next

        dom.Save("C:\temp\test.xml")

Open in new window

I can knock together a Linq-to-Xml version if you prefer.
