Sorry if the msg is in wrong forum group. Can anyone help me out with generating data from xml format. Say I have a table which contains a column with xml data format. From that column I want value of particular element. Below is an example that I'm trying to convey.

<Page id="34" pageGroupId="6" title="Risk Management & Global" render="1" type="1" template="" division="3"><Elements><GroupElement id="243" name="MetaData" render="1"><MetaDataElement id="244" key="Description" value="tbd" render="1" /> </GroupElement> </Elements> </Page>

Now I want to retrive result tbd of element MetaDataElement. So is it possible? If yes How?

Please can anyone help me out.

@doc VARCHAR(8000),
@hdoc INT,
@MetaDataElement varchar(500),
@value varchar(500)

Set @XML = '<MetaDataElement id="244" key="Description" value="tbd" render="1" />'

SET @doc = '<Record>' + @XML + '</Record>'
