Hi,
We have a very large xml file called GMEIIssuedFullFIle.xml

What would the SQL code be to...
load the file into a test database so that we can view the data that is in the xml file.

Thanks for your help in advance

You could do that for instance like in the query below assuming you know the structure of your XML doc:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].XMLtable_load(
      [bip] [varchar](10) NULL,
      [Doc_TYPE] [varchar](50) NULL,
      [Doc] [text] NULL,
      [ID] [varchar](50) NULL,
      [rowOrder] [int] NULL,
) ON [PRIMARY] TEXTIMAGE_ON [PRIMARY]
GO


INSERT INTO XMLtable_load (bip,doc_type,doc,id,roworder)
 SELECT X.bip.query('bip').value('.', 'VARCHAR(10)'),      
 X.bip.query('Doc_TYPE').value('.', 'VARCHAR(50)'),
 X.bip.query('Doc').value('.', 'VARCHAR(8000)'),
 X.bip.query('@ID').value('.', 'VARCHAR(50)'),
 X.bip.query('@rowOrder').value('.', 'INT')
 FROM
 ( SELECT CAST(x AS XML)FROM OPENROWSET(     BULK 'C:\Downloads\BipDocs.xml', SINGLE_BLOB) AS T(x)     )
 AS T(x)CROSS APPLY x.nodes('Root/bip_Doc') AS X(bip);
