Should this query returns
99-32G56, Vaccine, TRIM, VAC
?

It returns no row.

You don't have a c.value, you have @x.value
DECLARE @x xml; 
SET @x = N'<book>
                <book_number>99-32G56</book_number>
                <book_title>Vaccine</book_title>
                <abbreviated_title>VAC</abbreviated_title>
                <institute>TRIM</institute>
                <coordinator>
                        <name>May Flower</name>
                        <phone>3014513267</phone>

</book>';
                
                select 
                @x.value(N'(book/book_number)[1]', N'nvarchar(20)') AS bookID ,

Thanks Brandon.  I will be back with more questions.  This is just the first trial of my attempt to load large xml file into databases.  I am still struggling...

May I ask why a accurate, functional answer on my FIRST post deserves a "B" grade?

cpeters5,
 
BrandonGalderisi has asked (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_24321321.html) for an explanation of the grade you awarded for this question. Please read http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp?hi=403 and then respond to the request for an explanation of the grade given.
 
As indicated in that help topic, a typical grade here is an A.  If the Expert(s) provided you a good starting point but you still had to add a significant amount of work or research to find the eventual solution, then a B is common, but when you use the B grade you should post an explanation as to why you awarded a B, including what you had to do on your own to get to the solution.
 
A C grade is usually reserved only for those cases where the Expert(s) gave vague and/or incomplete responses, and then did not reply to reasonable requests for further information.  Before you award a C, you should *always* post a comment in your question clearly stating the gaps in the current responses, and then allow a reasonable amount of time for the Expert(s) to address those gaps.  Indeed, many Experts would prefer having a question deleted altogether than to have a question closed with a C.
 
Please review this message and the help topic linked above.  If after doing so you want to change the grade then post a comment to this question to that effect and a Moderator will help you.
 
Thank you,
