I am trying to get the TSQL code in SQL Server to parse the XML to show records in ColumnA
declare @XmlDoc xml, 
@iDoc integer 
select @XmlDoc = '<VendorCodesRS xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" EchoToken="String" TimeStamp="2011-02-17T16:29:05" Version="2003A.TsabreXML1.0.1" SequenceNmbr="1" PrimaryLangID="en-us" AltLangID="en-us">
  <Success xmlns="http://webservices/XML/2003/07" />
  <VendorInfo xmlns="http://webservices/XML/2003/07">
    <Row RPH="1">
      <ColumnA>
        <Text>A</Text>
      </ColumnA>
      <ColumnB />
      <ColumnC>
        <Text>LetterA</Text>
      </ColumnC>
    </Row>
    <Row RPH="2">
      <ColumnA>
        <Text>A</Text>
      </ColumnA>
      <ColumnB>
        <Text>AB</Text>
      </ColumnB>
      <ColumnC>
        <Text>LetterAB</Text>
      </ColumnC>
    </Row>
    <Row RPH="3">
      <ColumnA>
        <Text>A</Text>
      </ColumnA>
      <ColumnB>
        <Text>AC</Text>
      </ColumnB>
      <ColumnC>
        <Text>LetterAC</Text>
      </ColumnC>
    </Row>
  </VendorInfo>
  <TPA_Extensions xmlns="http://webservices/XML/2003/07">
    <HostCommand>DU*/CLS</HostCommand>
  </TPA_Extensions>
</VendorCodesRS>' 

exec sp_xml_preparedocument @iDoc output, @XmlDoc
select * from openxml
(@iDoc, 'VendorInfo',2) 
WITH 
(
ColumnA varchar(max) 'ColumnA/Text'
)

EXEC sp_xml_removedocument @idoc

I found a way to make it work if I remove the namespace definition from the VendorInfo node (see snippet).  But unfortunately I haven't succeeded in getting it to work without any modifications to the XML.

Hopefully this will get you going though?
declare @XmlDoc xml = '<VendorCodesRS xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" EchoToken="String" TimeStamp="2011-02-17T16:29:05" Version="2003A.TsabreXML1.0.1" SequenceNmbr="1" PrimaryLangID="en-us" AltLangID="en-us">
  <Success xmlns="http://webservices/XML/2003/07" />
  <VendorInfo>
    <Row RPH="1">
      <ColumnA>
        <Text>A</Text>
      </ColumnA>
      <ColumnB />
      <ColumnC>
        <Text>LetterA</Text>
      </ColumnC>
    </Row>
    <Row RPH="2">
      <ColumnA>
        <Text>A</Text>
      </ColumnA>
      <ColumnB>
        <Text>AB</Text>
      </ColumnB>
      <ColumnC>
        <Text>LetterAB</Text>
      </ColumnC>
    </Row>
    <Row RPH="3">
      <ColumnA>
        <Text>A</Text>
      </ColumnA>
      <ColumnB>
        <Text>AC</Text>
      </ColumnB>
      <ColumnC>
        <Text>LetterAC</Text>
      </ColumnC>
    </Row>
  </VendorInfo>
  <TPA_Extensions xmlns="http://webservices/XML/2003/07">
    <HostCommand>DU*/CLS</HostCommand>
  </TPA_Extensions>
</VendorCodesRS>';

select Col.value(N'./Text[1]', N'nvarchar(100)') as ColumnA
from @XmlDoc.nodes(N'//VendorInfo/Row/ColumnA') Tab(Col);

The data resides in a SQL field and I am just doing a find replace before loading the data. Thanks!
