TSQL - working with XML.


I am writing a stored procedure that will return an xml document.  

The document contains 3 sections.  

I am thinking that i would first create the three different sections with their own TSQL and then combine them into the final xml document.

Is this OK?  And if so how would i modify my xml document to insert the three sections between the root tags?

Using SQL Server 2008.

Can you post a sample table with data and the expected XML format?

you can use FOR XML clause to generate XML

following link will be helpful for that

Thanks for the link but i have already done my homework and i can produce the xml i need.

My question is if it is bad practice to generate the seperate sections and then join them in one xml document.

And if this is possible how would i do:

xmlDoc = xmlSection1 + xmlSection2 + xmlSection3

I.e. is there syntax/tools to work with xml appart from select/insert etc.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
