SET @link = N'<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-16"?><link>http://www.mydomain.com</link>'	
 
DECLARE @description XML 	
SET @description = N'<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-16"?><description>Current Real Estate Listings from My Domain Properties</description>'	
 
DECLARE @lastBuildDate XML 	
SET @lastBuildDate = N'<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-16"?><feedPublishDate>' + CONVERT (Varchar(10), getdate(), 101) + '</feedPublishDate>'	
 
DECLARE @language XML 	
SET @language = N'<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-16"?><language>en-us</language>'

momi_sabag:
When I insert your code into my SP I get a "successful" message.

When I add
select @output afterwards I'm getting a nocolumn name and blank field

When I add return @output I get
Operand type clash: xml is incompatible with int

Do I need to cast or convert my integer data fields that are getting returned?
