Hi, I have a column with datatype nvarchar where we are storing XML string, e.g below

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?><root available-locales="en_GB" default-locale="en_GB"><Title language-id="en_GB">Cookies</Title></root>

now how can I pull "Cookies" from this string ?

declare @XML as xml

set @XML = '<?xml version=''1.0'' encoding=''UTF-8''?><root available-locales="en_GB" default-locale="en_GB"><Title language-id="en_GB">Cookies</Title></root>'

select @XML.value('(root/Title)[1]', 'varchar(50)')
