great job providing sample data!

edit because another post by a different user posted the Identical xml, I've removed my post because it looks like homework
http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1394445-392-1.aspx

And Another Edit:
oops ok since it was actually the same user, but he changed his login between the accidental post and this one, I assumed two different users.,

I guess that's ok, so *poof* here is is back again:


i played with this, and it looks like this gets you what you are after, but it's missing the <Root> tag...not sure how to get that yet, but will pot it if I get it to work:

select * from @xmldata FOR XML RAW('Node')



the complete test set i was playing with...very helpful to look at some of the other formats to familiarize yourself:

DECLARE @idoc int
DECLARE @doc xml

Your first post about this
Your second post about this
Your third post about this
Your fourth post about this

So this one makes five posts. . . Can I offer a suggestion? One post is all that is required, if you post in multiple places like you have this time, you'll fragment any posts that are attempting to answer you.

If you litter your database queries with nolock query hints, are you aware of the side effects?
Try reading a few of these links...

(*) Missing rows with nolock
(*) Allocation order scans with nolock
(*) Consistency issues with nolock
(*) Transient Corruption Errors in SQL Server error log caused by nolock
(*) Dirty reads, read errors, reading rows twice and missing rows with nolock

Please stop. You have been told repeatedly to not post so many threads and just continuing to beg for help is not going to work very well.

It seems that you need some help. You have generated a number of threads on this topic and have received help in almost all of them. Your answer is now spread all over the posts you have created. The biggest issue I have seen is that you keep asking for help but don't provide much in the way of details. We also haven't seen that you have even tried to figure it out on your own. The people who post here are volunteers, that means we don't get paid to solve your issues. We do it because we enjoy the challenge and teaching others.

Maybe if you take the time to be more clear in your requirements you might find somebody willing to take the time to help you.

To be honest, this makes no sense. Why would you import and shred the XML data and then turn around and rebuild the XML? Just use the original XML data.

--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.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

Does this all data come from an actual database object. If yes, please post that DDL and some sample data here. I had experience working with XML data. I am asking about the object because, it looks like the order / hierarchy of the employees is stored in a table.

for ex: CEO as top level, President QA as next level and so on.. I hope you got my point.

Thanks
