Return XML to response.write from SQL XML type


I am trying to retrive some XML from my SQL server 2005 database. The XML is in a table called "myxml" and it is being stored a native XML. The Field type is "XML". The VB code returns nothing when I select SELECT xml. How ever if i SELECT NAME it displays the correct name from the name field. how do I return the XML to be viewed as XML throught the response.write?


Here is my Table definition:

Column Name

Data Type Allow Nulls
Id Int  
xml xml Yes
NAME Nvarchar(50) yes

My XML that is stored in the XML field:

		<TITLE>This is a test</TITLE>

Here is my VB code:


        Dim myconnection As SqlConnection
        Dim mycommand As SqlCommand
        myconnection = New SqlConnection()
        myconnection.ConnectionString = _

        Dim strSQL As String = "SELECT [xml] FROM myxml WHERE id = 76"

        ' create SQL command instance
        mycommand = New SqlCommand(strSQL, myconnection)

            ' open database connection
            'execute T-SQL command
            Dim dr = mycommand.ExecuteReader()
                Response.Write("<p>" & dr(0).ToString() & "</p>")
            End While
            Response.Write("GOT IT")

        Catch ex As Exception

        End Try
        ' Close connection

I figured it out. Here is the correct code:



        Dim sqlconn As New Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection
        Dim sqlcmd As New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand
        Dim xmldoc As New XmlDocument

        sqlconn.ConnectionString = _


        sqlcmd.Connection = sqlconn
        sqlcmd.CommandText = "SELECT [xml] FROM myxml WHERE id = 81"

        Dim myXR = sqlcmd.ExecuteXmlReader()

        Dim sb As New StringBuilder()
        While myXR.Read()
        End While

        Dim finXML As String = sb.ToString()

Getting standard SQL datatypes from XML, i.e. XML->SQL
Hi all, I'm wanting to get standard SQL data types from an XML document in ASE. Looking at the documentation in 'XML Services in Adaptive Server Enterprise', it all seems to be concerned with transforming SQL into XML, or manipluating XML. e.g. how do you get a query like :- select filename, xmlextract("//book/title" , content) from xmlsfsTab to return a 'SQL' result set so the title column does NOT containt XML fragments, i.e. it looks like:- filename title ---------------- -------------------------------- bookstore.1.xml ...

Is it possible to pass an XML variable to a SQL Server 2005 Stored Procedure with the XML data type as it's receiving argument? I can get the SQL Server Procedure to work perfectly with XML passed to it from another Stored Procedure, but as soon as I define a Stored Procedure from within a datawindow to pass parameters to it, I get "Cannot create DataWindow" and "XML parse error occurred on line number 1, near the XML text "0"".

Hello All Just wondered if someone could help me with a bit of T-SQL, i have a application in ASP.NET/VB that allows the user to update a message board by clicking a button "update" this in turn triggers my Stored Procedure for inserting this data into a table, which works great. It inserts the data into its respective fields and also takes The Title, Line 1, Line 2 and so on and creates a XML file  (Using FOR XML) which is stored in the same Table under a column call XML_Data. Which again works great. My problem now is how do i output this XML_Data to an actual XML fi...

XML or SQL Datasource
I have web forms that include a number of drop down lists many of which are re-used through the app. Would it be more efficient - resources-wise - to use an XML datasource to populate the lists and then simply insert the text attribute into a record - or should I do a select against a table in the database and use an ID as the attribute that I insert into the record that is being saved? For example - a drop down has values Small, Medium, Large. If I use an XML file these attributes are stored as text and when selected in the app, the text value (Small, Medium, Large) is inserted into the [si...

In SQL Server 2000, is it possible to create an xml document in memory within a stored procedure (say, with FOR XML AUTO)? The resulting xml from such a call is not a string, so you can't use it as the input parameter for sp_xml_preparedocument. Any ideas?...
