Hello experts,

I am attempting to write a SQL script that will generate an XML File from Users and profile table.

I want the structure to be as follows:::

<User ApplicationID="GUID1" UserId="GUID2" UserName="Test">
  <Profile UserId="GUID2" FirstName="" LastName="" LastUpdatedDate="" Gender="M" Occupation="" PersonalWebsite="" Address="" AptNumber="" City="" State="" PostalCode="" Country="" DayPhone="" DayPhoneExt="" EveningPhone="" EveningPhoneExt="" CellPhone="" Fax="" Company="" Address2="" City2="" State2="" PostalCode2="" Phone2="" Fax2="" Website2="editing" Newsletter="Html"/>
</User>

Open in new window


I also want the userid to be relational.

Here is my current script:::
USE [Database]
GO

SELECT ApplicationID AS 'User/@ApplicationID', UserID AS 'User/@UserId', UserName AS 'User/@UserName',
(SELECT UserId AS 'Profile/@UserId', FirstName AS 'Profile/@FirstName', LastName AS 'Profile/@LastName', LastUpdatedDate AS 'Profile/@LastUpdatedDate', Gender AS 'Profile/@Gender', BirthDate AS 'Profile/@BirthDate', Occupation AS 'Profile/@Occupation', 
PersonalWebsite AS 'Profile/@PersonalWebsite', Address AS 'Profile/@Address', AptNumber AS 'Profile/@AptNumber', City AS 'Profile/@City', State AS 'Profile/@State', PostalCode AS 'Profile/@PostalCode', Country AS 'Profile/@Country',
DayPhone AS 'Profile/@DayPhone', DayPhoneExt AS 'Profile/@DayPhoneExt', EveningPhone AS 'Profile/@EveningPhone', EveningPhoneExt AS 'Profile/@EveningPhoneExt', CellPhone AS 'Profile/@CellPhone', Fax AS 'Profile/@Fax', Company AS 'Profile/@Company', 
Address2 AS 'Profile/@Address2', City2 AS 'Profile/@City2', State2 AS 'Profile/@State2', PostalCode2 AS 'Profile/@PostalCode2', Phone2 AS 'Profile/@Phone2', Fax2 AS 'Profile/@Fax2', Website2 AS 'Profile/@Website2', Culture AS 'Profile/@Culture', 
Newsletter AS 'Profile/@Newsletter' FROM dbo.aspnet_CustomProfile FOR XML PATH('Profiles'),TYPE) 
FROM dbo.aspnet_Users
FOR XML PATH(''),
ROOT('Users')
GO
