In the same row?  Yes  
In multiple rows with a common criteria?  Yes.

values to be inserted are read from an xml file, so i don't know how many set of values there going to be.
do i need dynamic sql query or is it possible to do this in stored procedure?

I think you'd have to build the query dynamically.  You might be able to do this with a stored proc, but I'm not sure.

Instead of hypotheicals, why don't you post the schema (CREATE TABLE) to your table, a sample Xml file and how they are mapped (if it is not obvious) and we can give you a complete example using either OPENXML() if you are still using SQL Server 2000 compatibility or the newer Xml Data Type Methods if you are using SQL Server 2005 or greater.
