How do I import XML file into SQL Server 2005???

Hi,

I was wondering if someone could explain to me how I can go about importing a set of data from an XML file to a database.  The file is located on: http://www.treasurydirect.gov/xml/PendingAuctions.xml

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated!  Thanks

Post the structure of the tables involved, columns to be imported and typical size of the Xml document.

As you can see from the url above, the table consists of only a few columns.  

Security type, cusip, announcement date, auction date, and issue date.

and the data usually runs only 3-4 sets.  I just want to be able to import that into a nice readable format such as excel or into sql so that i can automate the grabbing of the data.

I can show you how you can do that with a stored procedure, but you would still need some front-end app (written in VbScript, .NET, etc.) to pass the Xml document.  Is that an option?

I have no idea.  It is trivial doing it in MS SQL Server.  But if you are not familiar with it, than it will be difficult to explain.
