You may need to expand on what you are trying to do. Just removing the closing tag will create a malformed Xml document. I'm not sure that the DOM methods will allow you to create a malformed document, you may have to do it using basic string operations.

No,by the above example i am just explaining the thing i want to do.after removal of the tag i need to write some values and i will close the tag..that will be the final output.

Why not just add the values? The DOM takes care of that, you can add content inside without having to mangle the document.

If you are using the XML DOM Document model then you should not (and cannot) remove the closing tag.

As Ron Beyer has said - just add the values you require to the appropriate node (which can be the root)

Here are some links to demonstrate further...[^][^]

An alternative is the XMLWriter class[^]
