I have a VB.Net process that is passing in XML as VARCHAR, 8000 to SQL Server 2005 table
oCom.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@XmlDoc", SqlDbType.VarChar, 8000)).Value = s

The XML looks like this
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<org.m5.api.v1.Response xmlns:m5="http://www.something.com/org/sm/data/v2/cti" xmlns:csta="http://www.ecma-international.org/standards/ecma-323/csta/ed5">
    <ErrorCount>0</ErrorCount>
    <Id>1</Id>
    <Result xsi:type="org.m5.data.v2.cti.HostedConnectObject" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
        <csta:MonitorStartResponse>
            <csta:monitorCrossRefID>647</csta:monitorCrossRefID>
        </csta:MonitorStartResponse>
    </Result>
</org.m5.api.v1.Response>

Open in new window


In my database the table column...set as XML stores the data fine.
However...it strips off the top xml row of my XML.

Just wondering why.
This is what it stores.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>

That is the way Xml is stored in SQL Server when using an Xml data type.  If it is important to you than consider saving the Xml document to a column with  a data type of varchar  or char.
