I have an xml file containing multiple records that I need to insert into a SQL2000 database table called Images. I would like to know the best way to do this when their could be a hundred records of data in the XML file.

The xml is formatted as follows:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

I have used OpenXML for this in a stored procedure setting the input xml as a TEXT parameter

Create an internal representation of the document using sp_xml_preparedocument (@INT_DOC OUTPUT, @XML_DOC)

I am not saying only those technologies, but I would predominantly like to read the xml file contents, loop through the items insert them into a database table using asp, vbscript, an xml parser or reader and sql.
No SPs. No need for the sarcastic comments.

no sarcasm intended... I just thought it was difficult to do limiting to certain technologies... and was looking forward to see what people came up with.

Why no SP? I don't understand why you would not want to use these?

The architecture of a solution is something I always take great interest in as it can commonly cause massive problems at later stages if not done properly in the first instance.

Because I would rather not use them. I have found a solution elsewhere now.

I have used LINQ 2 SQL and the ReadXML method, creating a dataset for the data import
