Hi,

Here is the XML file which has 2 entry. Goal is to puch all the values in this XML file to a database.

1. All tags in the XML file will be column in database.
2. Code should read all the entry one by one and save the data within respective tags to the database.

Thanks.

XML file

The best way is to split the XML into simpler XML (node/record of one)


XDocument doc = XDocument.Load("your.xml");
var newXMLs = doc.Descendants("DOC")
                 .Select(d => new XDocument(new XElement("DATABASE", d)));
foreach (var newXML in newXMLs)
{
    newXML.Save("newfilename.xml");
}

And then, insert all those each xml file with iteration using the following code:

DataSet reportData = new DataSet();
reportData.ReadXml(Server.MapPath(”report.xml”));

SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(”conn_str”);
SqlBulkCopy bc = new SqlBulkCopy(conn);
bc.DestinationTableName = “table”;

//map Cols
bc.ColumnMappings.Add(”field1”, “node1”);
bc.ColumnMappings.Add(”field2”, “node2”);

conn.Open();

bc.WriteToServer(reportData.Tables[4]);
conn.Close();
