Below is a proc that I have. after executing it I get 2 rows of XML. I want to loop through each row and perform some tasks on it. How can I loop through different rows in SQL server store proc
DECLARE @docHandle int
EXEC sp_xml_preparedocument @docHandle OUTPUT, 
'<ClauseGroup>
		<GroupID>1</GroupID>
		<GroupName>Test Group</GroupName>
		<EffectiveDate>1/1/1900 12:00:00 AM</EffectiveDate>

Use a cursor to do the looping:

DECLARE  CursorTemplate CURSOR
FAST_FORWARD FOR       
      SELECT Val1, Val2, Val3 FROM Table1

OPEN CursorTemplate

FETCH NEXT FROM CursorTemplate
INTO      @Var1, @Var2, @Var3

WHILE (@@FETCH_STATUS = 0)
BEGIN
      --do something here w/ your data

      FETCH NEXT FROM CursorTemplate
      INTO      @Var1, @Var2, @Var3

END

CLOSE CursorTemplate
DEALLOCATE CursorTemplate

i am kind of confused with this  statement. Can you please explain.

FAST_FORWARD FOR      
      SELECT Val1, Val2, Val3 FROM Table1  (I dont have to select anything from the table over here. The data is coming XML )

Right...you'd just swap in your SQL statement that pulls the XML data out...

ECLARE @docHandle int
EXEC sp_xml_preparedocument @docHandle OUTPUT,
'<ClauseGroup>
                <GroupID>1</GroupID>
                <GroupName>Test Group</GroupName>
                <EffectiveDate>1/1/1900 12:00:00 AM</EffectiveDate>
                <ExpirationDate>1/1/1900 12:00:00 AM</ExpirationDate>
                <DeActivateDate>1/1/1900 12:00:00 AM</DeActivateDate>
         <Clauses>
          <Clause>
           <ClauseID>0</ClauseID>
