I have written the following query which gives me two empty rows with out any data.

WITH g AS (SELECT xmltype(bfilename('SAMP_XML_DIR','textfile.xml'), nls_charset_id('WE8ISO8859P1')) xmlcol1 FROM dual)
SELECT
extractValue(value(x),'ATB/CLAIMDATA/Claimno') claimno        
,extractValue(value(x),'ATB/CLAIMDATA/patname') patname  
,extractValue(value(x),'ATB/CLAIMDATA/payors/payordata/inscode[1]') ins1code
,extractValue(value(x),'ATB/CLAIMDATA/payors/payordata/insbal[1]') ins1bal
,extractValue(value(x),'ATB/CLAIMDATA/payors/payordata/inspriority[1]') ins1priority
,extractValue(value(x),'ATB/CLAIMDATA/payors/payordata/inscode[2]') ins2code
,extractValue(value(x),'ATB/CLAIMDATA/payors/payordata/insbal[2]') ins2bal
,extractValue(value(x),'ATB/CLAIMDATA/payors/payordata/inspriority[2]') ins2priority
FROM g,TABLE(XMLSequence(extract(g.xmlcol1,'ATB/CLAIMDATA'))) x;

Please help me in resolving the issue and getting the data  through this query.

Thanks in advance,
Sunil.

extract and extractvalue is deprecated and shouldn't be used anymore.

use XMLTABLE instead.

See if the example below works for you.

Note:  I use CTE (WITH) to get the XML but the query should work fine using bfilename.

Also note I had to tweak the XML you posted.  You had 'Claimno' in one node and 'claimno' in another.
