DataSet Usage In SQL statements

Hello,

so I have a database that contain's a table called accounts. The table's schema is:

ID              Username            Password


I also have an XML file which lists a bunch of ID's in it;
i.e.
<account>
 ID = "dasdfds"
</account>
<account>
 ID = "asdfda"
</account>

Thus the xml file contains a bunch of ID's that I gather into a dataset, or datatable. My question is whether there is an easy way with SQL or MSSQL to acquire all the row's in the "accounts" table whose ID colum matches the ID values in the XML dataset?

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated :)

thanks

If that was a well-formed Xml document you could OpenXml, unfortunately that is not a well formed Xml document.  Perhaps you can change it as follows:

<accounts>
      <account ID = "dasdfds"/>
      <account ID = "asdfda"/>
</accounts>

In which case, it would be trivial.

yah but the reason I want tha tis because my XML file contains certain accounts that I want to access at a certain time...so if I can somehow get all those ID's from my database table ithat would be great :)

As I said, if it is a well formed Xml document it is easy.  So do you have a well formed Xml document, so that I can give you some sample code using OpenXml?
