I want to read through an xml document with a loop. I've removed the extraneous code.

I get this error: Msg 2389, Level 16, State 1, Line 10
XQuery [value()]: 'value()' requires a singleton (or empty sequence), found operand of type 'xdt:untypedAtomic *'

When I replace this line:
select a.b.value('PID[position() = sql:variable("@LoopCount")]/PID.3[1]', 'varchar(200)') as tehvalue2
from @XMLDoc.nodes('HL7Message') as a(b)

with this I get expected results.

select a.b.value('PID[1]/PID.3[1]', 'varchar(200)') as tehvalue2
from @XMLDoc.nodes('HL7Message') as a(b)


Declare @LoopCount int
Set @LoopCount = 1

DECLARE @cmd NVARCHAR(MAX),
@rc INT,
@XMLDoc XML
set @XMLDoc = '<?xml version="1.0"

I'd like to know how to implement the loopcount variable so I can read through each value. Sorry and thanks for the help. The first time should grab the first person's SS#, the second time through the loops should get the second...etc....

You just need to make it into a singleton query by plopping some brackets round the selector...

select a.b.value('(PID[sql:variable("@LoopCount")]/PID.3)[1]', 'varchar(200)') as tehvalue2 
from @XMLDoc.nodes('HL7Message') as a(b)



...but why are you using a loop? if you explain what you are trying to achieve, maybe we can help get rid of that loop?

    This is going to call other queries depending on the data in the xml. Not all of the values that determine the will be the same. For example 2 bits of xml could call query 1 and another could call a second query. So when you say put brackets around it, I though I already had? Can you specifically show what you mean?

    You just need to make it into a singleton query by plopping some brackets round the selector...

    select a.b.value('(PID[sql:variable("@LoopCount")]/PID.3)[1]', 'varchar(200)') as tehvalue2 
    from @XMLDoc.nodes('HL7Message') as a(b)




    To explain more, this:

    PID[sql:variable("@LoopCount")]/PID.3[1]


    is not a singleton query because (as far as the engine knows) there could be more than 1 PID that matches whatever is in the variable @LoopCount.
    The fact you put "[1]" after the "PID.3" selector just means "the first PID.3 node which is a child of any PID node previously selected", so you need the brackets I have now highlighted (but were in my first response already) to make the xpath query into a singleton query.

    Hope that explains a bit better for you :-)
