Is there a way to add a node to an XML string using Xquery?

For example:

<node1>test1</node1>
<node2>test2</node2>

The XML string is stored in a SQL table so I would need to extract the string, add the node and save the string back to the table.

felkamau,

Maybe you want to look at the insert capabilities of XML.modify() in SQL Server.
Here is an example:
DECLARE @xml XML;
SET @xml = '<node1>test1</node1><node2>test2</node2>';

SET @xml.modify('insert <node3>test3</node3> as last into (/)');

SELECT @xml;

Open in new window


Hope that helps!

Best regards and happy coding,

Kevin
