|NewXML||The new xml for node or attribute.
Can be XML as text or the reference returned by XML.Parse function, so you can make several times queries to the XML without parsing it each time.

DescriptionSets path value with XML sub tree.
If needed, new nodes / attributes are added.
This function uses a path notation like the JSON functions in FileMaker to describe paths. Please point with path to new node.
You can use name of a node followed by option index in square brackets. On the end you can use # followed by a name of an attribute to select only the attribute. Empty brackets or too big index allow you to append new node.
Delimiter between items can be dot like FileMaker or newline.
If you pass in a XML reference number and you do not pass Flag value 32 for returning as XML, we just modify the XML reference in memory. This avoids performance hit for outputting and parsing xml for each change.
Insert new node:
Insert second node with index:
