saving xml file to client machine

Hi,
Here is the scenario.

I have a web application written in vb.net. One of the functionalities
of the application is to save the recordset in an xml format on to the
client machine. The xml file needs to be saved on the client machine
for the offline application to work. when the user works on the offline
module the data in the saved xml file gets updated. The data from the
updated xml file needs to be written back to the main database server.

Now the question is : which is the best way of saving the xml file on
the client machine and dumping the same xml file back on to the web
server.

Thanks,
Hari

You cannot save files on to the client and upload them back silently.

Save the recordset to XML file on the server side and push it to the client
(download prompt). Ask the user to save the XML file locally and use for
offline purposes. After the update, ask him to upload the XML file back to
the site.
