Create a single tag XML element using VBA

I have an MS Access application that generates XML, using the MSXML2 DOM object.  I have code that looks like this:

            Set objSubElem = objDoc.createElement("FieldName")
            objElem.appendChild objSubElem
            objSubElem.Text = "UNIT=""in"" VALUE=""" & rs("Field1") & """"

Open in new window


Which creates output like this:

          <FieldName>UNIT="in" VALUE="0.13529"</FieldName>

However, I'd like the output to result in a single tag, looking like this:

          <FieldName UNIT="in" VALUE="0.13529" />

Is there a setting or attribute I can tweak to get the desired result?

Thanks in advance.

Replace your line 3 with:
            objSubElem.setAttribute "UNIT", "in"
            objSubElem.setAttribute "VALUE", rs("Field1")

Open in new window
