Hi,
I am trying to replace an element node with a text node in my xml file.
from Source xml:
to result xml
this is the code i wrote

But i get DOMException with message DOM008 not found.
I thought that i cannot replace an element with text. i tried to replace with another element instead of text but same exception again.
Could anyone tell me whats wrong with my code.
thankyou,
shankar.

Hi Shankar,
Text nodes need to be appended to Element nodes. So if you wanted to replace your <err/> tag with text, you want to first remove it, then append the new text node you create to the message tag.
Hope that helps!
