If you want to do that locally, then you can't do it with flash alone - the only way you could save the new xml data would be using a local SharedObject but it has limitations compared with what you have described.
Best I could suggest is to check out Adobe's AIR (formerly apollo) which should let you do the kind of thing you want.
I was wanting to move it to AIR, but doesn't it first have to be built in Flash and then exported to AIR?
The Adobe Integrated Runtime is Flex based as far as I am aware. You'll need Flex Builder or a Flex development runtime (modified version of Eclipse) to get what you need.
@Risuun - yes that's what I meant by not being able to do it with flash alone (for as2 there's still all the 3rd party projector wrapper options as well - Zinc etc). You will need to read up on AIR- someone else here may have experience and I notice a number of the dev sites/blogs have Apollo/AIR categories now - perhaps there may be some tutorials out there...
This page looks like the content predates the Flash CS3 release:
Im not sure if this is exactly what your looking for, however to get xml data into your flash movie is really quite simple. The following url contains a tutorial on just that. As for writting to an xml file im not sure.
hope that is relevant and helps (maybe i have misunderstood)
@Barry. Good point. Risuun did ask for both reading and writing XML and you're right the reading part is easy. I guess I just focused on the part you can't do with flash by itself - the writing part.
