SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET (BULK '\\mynetworksharedrive\XML\Output_Files\test.xml', SINGLE_BLOB) AS Data

I'm trying to read the xml from a network sharedrive but wasn't successful, tried using a 'C:\XML\Output_Files\test.xml' is okay, but the xml file would eventually stored in a network drive rather than my c drive or the database server c drive.

Is there a way to mapped it to a network drive?

create one windows user, give full permission to "Output_files" folder to that user, create login for that windows user in sql server,

Once you done with that, login to your SSMS with windows authentication and you will be ok
