As per my other question, i want to turn the parent part of my parent and child xml record into an append query to append to a table with the same columns names as my xml fields...

is there a nice tidy quick loop way of going through the XML nodes and making a database record?

insert into table records (QLXID, QLSID, GeneralLedgercode, .., Vatcode, CompanyID)
select fields from xml.....
the "questions" nested part can be ignored at this point, as it will be in a seperate XML string to be appended to the Questions table, with the ID identity from the "records" table as its foreign Key.
