VBScript, XML, adding an attribute to root element

VBScript, XML, adding an attribute to root element

VBScript, XML, adding an attribute to root element

I'm trying to create a new XML doc; for the moment just the root element. I'd like the output to look like this:

<ImportInspectionsRequest xmlns="http://schemas.datacontract.org/BlahBlah_V2">

Here's the code:

Set xmlDoc = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM")
Set objRoot = xmlDoc.createElement("ImportInspectionsRequest")
objRoot.SetAttribute "xmlns","http://schemas.datacontract.org/BlahBlah_V2"
xmlDoc.appendChild objRoot
xmlDoc.Save "test.xml"

The script runs without error. The xml is is created and has the node, but no attribute.
Any idea why not? SetAttribute must have done something or it would have squawked.

Apparently not related to being the root element. Same happens elsewhere, several levels in.


RE: VBScript, XML, adding an attribute to root element

Foolish me. The attributes are there. They don't appear viewing the XML file in some browsers. Bah.
