Hello,

I am executing this below code in sql queryanalyzer .It returns the null value.

Here is my code

 exec sp_xml_preparedocument @hDoc OUTPUT,'<Shops><Shop><col1>01000200</col1><col2>49.035792</col2><col3>-122.338480</col3><col4>ADDRESS</col4></Shop></Shops>'
Select col1,col2,col3,col4
 FROM OPENXML(@hDoc, 'Shops/shop')  
 WITH (col1 varchar(10),col2 varchar(50),col3 varchar(50),col4 varchar(50))

output
-----------------
col1   col2  col3  col4
---------------------------
null  null    null    null

But it should return the value of col1,col2,col3,col4.

Could anyone help me for this.

Try it this way:

Select      col1,
            col2,
            col3,
            col4
FROM      OPENXML(@hDoc, 'Shops/Shop') WITH (
            col1 varchar(10) 'col1',
            col2 varchar(50) 'col2',
            col3 varchar(50) 'col3',
            col4 varchar(50)'col4')
