my stored procedure looks like the following:

ALTER       PROCEDURE spDeleteMerchant
(
      @xmlDeleteMerchant text
)
AS

DECLARE @docHandle int,
      @type tinyint -- This variable determines the kind of deletions of merchants.
                  -- '0' means set the deleted flag to 1
                  -- '1' means physically delete the merchant.
EXEC sp_xml_preparedocument @docHandle OUTPUT, @xmlDeleteMerchant
SET @type = (SELECT type FROM OPENXML(@docHandle,'Input/Data/MerchantId,1') WITH (type tinyint))      
print @type

IF @type = 0
BEGIN
      UPDATE tblMerchants  
      SET Deleted = 1 /*Deleted*/
      WHERE MerchantId  IN (SELECT value FROM OPENXML(@docHandle, 'Input/Data/MerchantId',1) WITH (value int))
      SELECT @@ROWCOUNT rowsCount
END
ELSE IF @type = 1
BEGIN
      DELETE FROM tblMerchants
      WHERE MerchantId IN (SELECT value FROM OPENXML(@docHandle, 'Input/Data/MerchantId',1) WITH (value int))
      SELECT @@ROWCOUNT rowsCount

      DELETE FROM tblMerchantBankAccount
      WHERE MerchantId IN (SELECT value FROM OPENXML(@docHandle, 'Input/Data/MerchantId',1) WITH (value int))

      DELETE FROM tblMerchantApplications
      WHERE MerchantId IN (SELECT value FROM OPENXML(@docHandle, 'Input/Data/MerchantId',1) WITH (value int))
                  
END

When I run it using the following xml string I will have an xml parser error saying "XML parsing error: Expected token 'eof' found ','."

spDeleteMerchant '<Input><Data><MerchantId value="38" type="0"/></Data></Input>' --this is sample xml string.

what went wrong?

Thank you in advance.

Modify this line in the stored procedure:

From:
SET @type = (SELECT type FROM OPENXML(@docHandle,'Input/Data/MerchantId,1') WITH (type tinyint))  
To:
SET @type = (SELECT type FROM OPENXML(@docHandle,'Input/Data/MerchantId',1) WITH (type tinyint))

Your Xml document is not well-formed it should be:
<Input><Data><MerchantId value="38" type="0"></Data></Input>

Also, don't forget to release the Xml documentation when you are through or you will eventually run out of memory:
sp_xml_removedocument @docHandle

Actually, please ignore my comment, not sure what I was thinking.

I would agree with adding this statement to the end of your procedure:

sp_xml_removedocument @docHandle

Right.  That was the only part that made sense :)
