--I am only concerned with extracting five fields and created a table to hold those five fields.  I am

create table payroll

Cause there are two problems:

1. Your XML has a default namespace.
2. Your XPath expression is not correct. Where did you get (Column[@Name="Account"]/text())[1] from??

DECLARE @xml XML = N'
