Given the attached data, how would I write a select statement FOR XML Explicit. I want the structure to be
<Locations>
  <LocationID=xxx>
  <CinglePointID>xxx</CinglePointID>
   <OPUS_ID>XXX</OPUS_ID>
    etc......
   </LocationID>
  <LocationID=xxxx>
  <CinglePointID>xxx</CinglePointID>
  <OPUS_ID>XXX</OPUS_ID>
     etc...
  </LocationID>
 

</Locations>

sherbug1015,

How are you?

First, I am not sure you need FOR XML EXPLICIT here. Second, your attachment doesn't have column names, so my "first" is based on assumptions that the data and resulting XML are pretty flat. Another assumption is the first column is your LocationID column and that your first XML element is really <Location ID="xxx">...</Location>.

With all that said, here is what my first attempt would be:
SELECT LocationID AS "@ID"
     , CinglePointID
     , OPUS_ID
     -- and so on ...
FROM Your_TableName
FOR XML PATH('Location'), TYPE, ROOT('Locations')
;
