Hi Floks,

I am trying to get my hands dirty with XML in SQL Server. I have tried MSDN and some other links which google suggested but i think they are far from being from basic.
Can you guys please suggest some links to start with.

Thanks

Robert sheldon's Stairway to XML is simple yet very good.

You can also look at the W3Schools XML Tutorial,
andW3Schools XPath Tutorial for a simple & informative XML overview. This is also good: xml Data Type Methods (Technet).

The most important lesson that I've learned about XML is that it doesn't even meet the requirements of First Normal Form. Except for storing original XML data in an audit table (and I'd rather not do even that), I try to avoid letting anyone store XML data on any server that I'm responsible for. I don't even like to use it for "configuration control" in SQL Server even though the folks that have written various features of SQL Server are unfortunately leaning in that direction.


--Jeff Moden
"RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for "Row-By-Agonizing-Row".

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column."
