Hi ,
I have @xml variable, I need to convert to table, I can not grab "Answer Value" from xml
Thanks
DECLARE @tempTable TABLE
( Name NVARCHAR(50), Title NVARCHAR(50), Value NVARCHAR(50) )

INSERT INTO @tempTable SELECT Tbl.Col.value('@Name', 'NVARCHAR(50)')
          , Tbl.Col.value('@Title', 'NVARCHAR(50)')
          , Tbl.Col.value('@Value', 'NVARCHAR(50)')
            FROM @xml.nodes('//Question') Tbl(Col)

And the xml is below:
<Root>
    <Question Name="PleaseSpecify" add="canda">
    <Answer Value="" />
  </Question>
  <Question Name="aa" add="usa">
    <Answer Value="" />
  </Question>
</Root>

You are very close. Just fix the XPath.
DECLARE @tempTable TABLE(Name NVARCHAR(50), Title NVARCHAR(50), Value NVARCHAR(50));
DECLARE @xml XML;
SET @xml = '
<Root>
  <Question Name="PleaseSpecify" add="canda">
    <Answer Value="Test" />
  </Question>
  <Question Name="aa" add="usa">
    <Answer Value="Example" />
  </Question>
</Root>
';

INSERT INTO @tempTable(Name, Title, Value)
SELECT Tbl.Col.value('@Name', 'NVARCHAR(50)')
     , Tbl.Col.value('@Title', 'NVARCHAR(50)')
     , Tbl.Col.value('Answer[1]/@Value', 'NVARCHAR(50)')
FROM @xml.nodes('//Question') Tbl(Col)
;

SELECT Name, Title, Value
FROM @tempTable
;
