In your sproc declaration, you did not make the incoming parameter large enough to accommodate the incoming XML string. You declared it to be 100 in size, but the string being sent in is larger than 100. Making this value larger (e.g. make it match the 1000 you defined for the test parameter) should resolve this.

You also have a couple of errors in your sproc logic. I believe you need to use "1" instead of "2" on your OPENXML call. Also, your selection for LocationID is incorrect. You put "@LocID", but it should be "@LocationID."
