I got an Idea how to Send multiple rows to the Database from an Application
and from the below code we can even insert it to the table as u showed in the Article

consider a table Emp
INSERT INTO Emp (Name, Salary)

SELECT Name, Salary FROM OPENXML (@idoc, '/ROWS/ROW', 1)
WITH (Name varchar(50), Salary int)
WHERE Salary >= 1500

My Doubt is about how to Update multiple rows in Emp table using the below xml query


Please help me out for updating the table with above xml Query

Thank and Regards

Actually this is an interesting topic, but I would advice using SqlBulkCopy instead, which provide amazing performance, with just a few lines of code:

public virtual bool SqlBulkCopy(DataSet ds, string TableName) // provide ability to update any Table in the DS, assume TableName is idem for SQL and App Level
bool result = true;
using (SqlBulkCopy BulkCopy = new SqlBulkCopy(MyConnectionString))
BulkCopy.DestinationTableName = TableName;
BulkCopy.WriteToServer(ds.Tables[TableName]); // Write from the source to the destination.
catch (Exception e)
// Provide feedback of error issues, to be recovered using something like "DataSetErrorsShower.Show()"
ds.Tables[TableName].Rows[0].RowError = ExceptionHandler.WrapSqlException(e);
result = false;
if (result == true)
return result

Hope it helps, keep on comments.
Kind Regards,
