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).

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.
