INSERT data from XML File into SQL Table -- SQL SERVER 2000

I am using SQL Server 2000 and I have the following DML for a table I've created, followed by a snippet of the XML data file. As you can see from the data, there are multiple <INDIVIDUAL_ORDER> elements. I want to load this data into the table XML_TEST. The XML file is in a folder that the server has access to. It has been several years since I've done anything with XML and rememeber I researched forever to figure it out back then (no EE at the time) and don't want to repeat the experience.

I would greatly appreciate any help in coming up with the appropriate code to produce the required results.
CREATE TABLE XML_TEST

(

  SHIP_DATE DATETIME NULL,

  PRODUCT_ID CHAR(10) NOT NULL,

  VNDR_PART VARCHAR(25) NOT NULL,

  [DESCRIPTION] VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,

  SHIP_TO CHAR(6) NOT NULL,

  Z_NAME VARCHAR(25) NOT NULL,

  CUST_NAME VARCHAR(25) NOT NULL,

  ADDRESS1 VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,

  ADDRESS2 VARCHAR(50) NULL,

  ADDRESS3 VARCHAR(50) NULL,

  CITY VARCHAR(30) NOT NULL,

  STATE CHAR(2) NOT NULL,

  ZIP VARCHAR(10) NOT NULL,

  CUST_TEL BIGINT NOT NULL,

  SERIAL_NUM VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL,

  CUSTOMER_PO VARCHAR(10) NULL

)

Is there a way to do this completely within SQL with T-SQL and without the mapping file? It seems like I recall that is how I did it before (without the mapping file).

Possibly, but that doesn't sound right. T-SQL doesn't usually have access to files (as far as I know).

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

In the code sample, it includes:
<ElementType name="CustomerId" dt:type="int" />

What would I use for dt:type=""
to map the BIGINT and the DATETIME (it is actually just a date without a time component in the XML file) datatypes?

You can use bigint directly. Datetime will be at zero hour of the date.
