Just discovered a new problem, and I cant get round it. The data is now getting XML encoded < to < and > to > etc

Any ideas?

do a replace around it. Each character will be XML encoded and you can simply replace it back.

You need to apply a root node to the XML, force it into XML datatype and then select out the text from the root node....like this:



declare @Table1 table (EmailAddress varchar(20), Msg varchar(20))
insert @Table1
select 'email1','blue'
union select 'email2','black'
union select 'email1','&white'
union select 'email1','<orange'
union select 'email4','red'

select e.EmailAddress as Email
,stuff((select ',' + t.Msg
from @Table1 t where t.EmailAddress = e.EmailAddress
for xml path(''),root('a'),type).value('(a/text())[1]','varchar(4000)'),1,1,'') as MessageBody
from @Table1 e
group by e.EmailAddress




The change is this line:

for xml path(''),root('a'),type).value('(a/text())[1]','varchar(4000)'),1,1,'')   as MessageBody



Where I added

,root('a'),type

to the FOR XML PATH('')

and

.value('(a/text())[1]','varchar(4000)')

to pull the text out again...
