Hi,

You can use SSIS to import XML.

Here is a working example.
Quite a bit of work.

Suitably chastised Paul.

The secret torszula is to get your schema right and the datatypes of your table you are loading to the same.

Getting the hang of SSIS is time consuming, but I load all my repetitive data feeds via SSIS packages.
