Hi!

i Have simple data connection like this

Dim GetDataQry As String = "SELECT * from facilities where ItemID=@ItemId FOR XML PATH"
            Dim cmd As New SqlClient.SqlCommand(GetDataQry, conn)

with a SqlDataReader.

but it outputs only text. not xml as the query requests.
how do i get it to output xml into a asp.net page.

If you're writing this out to the page it could be that the browser is hiding the xml tags as unknown html tags, in that case you could try something like:
Response.Write yourxmlstringvar.Replace("<", "&lt;")

Open in new window

Response.ContentType = "text/xml"
