Hi there,
I'm creating a store procedure that returns simple data pertaining accounts.
What I need to is to format the xml output the following way:

<AccountNum>
    <AccountNum>000117622</AccountNum>
    <Name>                        </Name>
    <Address1>123 Man street      </Address1>
    <MTU>123</MTU>
    	<Port>1</Port>
    	<WaterConsumption4>30.00</WaterConsumption4>
    	<RunDate>2014-11-11T00:00:00</RunDate>
    </MTU>
    <MTU>345</MTU>
    	<Port>2</Port>
    	<WaterConsumption4>30.00</WaterConsumption4>
     	<RunDate>2014-11-11T00:00:00</RunDate>
    </MTU>
  </AccountNum>

Open in new window


here is the store procedure:
alter procedure usp_Summation360Consumption
as 
begin 
SELECT top 100 [AccountNum]
      ,[MTU]
      ,[Port]
      ,[WaterConsumption4]
      ,[Name]
      ,[Address1]
      ,[CutOffdt]
      ,[RunDate]
  FROM Consumption360
--  where AccountNum = '000112182'
for xml path ('AccountNum'), root('Account'), type
  end

Open in new window


How can I modify the procedure to get the output I need?
Thanks,
COHFL

Firstly, you can't. What you have given is not correct XML code.

For instance:

    <MTU>123</MTU>
    	<Port>1</Port>
    	<WaterConsumption4>30.00</WaterConsumption4>
    	<RunDate>2014-11-11T00:00:00</RunDate>
    </MTU>

Open in new window


has got two </MTU> but only one </MTU>

Guessing what you actually mean, I would suggest:

alter procedure usp_Summation360Consumption
as 
begin 
SELECT top 100 [AccountNum]
      ,'' as [Name]
      ,[Address1]
      ,[MTU]
      ,[Port] as 'MTU/Port'
      ,[WaterConsumption4] as 'MTU/WaterConsumption4'
      ,[Name] as 'RunDate' as 'MTU/RunDate'
  FROM Consumption360
--  where AccountNum = '000112182'
for xml path ('AccountNum'), root('Account')
  end

Open in new window

not quite there yet!

maybe syntax wise was not accurate but here is what im trying:
SELECT [AccountNum]
      ,[Name]
      ,[Address1]
	  (SELECT [MTU]
			  ,[Port]
			  ,[WaterConsumption4]
			  ,[RunDate]
		  FROM Consumption360
		  where AccountNum = '000100226'
		  order by [MTU], [PORT]
		for xml path ('MTU'), root('METER'), type
		)
  FROM Consumption360
  where AccountNum = '000100226'
  for xml path ('AccountNum'), root('ACCOUNT'), type

Open in new window


the idea is that the account info is wrap around on the top and each MTU after but under the same Account

You are missing a comma at the end of line 3.

If you can't get it quite right, I suggest posting the structure of the table and some sample data. But how close are you now?

yeah I just notice that =( thanks to point it out.
After I fix that little error on my part I get another error:
Unable to show XML. The following error happened:
Unexpected end of file has occurred. The following elements are not closed: RunDate, MTU, METER, AccountNum, ACCOUNT. Line 1, position 2097154

One solution is to increase the number of characters retrieved from the server for XML data. To change this setting, on the Tools menu, click Options.

I did that and pick the unlimited characters for XML and still does not work =(

Phil, I have try your version but it does not break on every MTU and repeats the account number on each entry. Im trying to format the output to break on each account but at the same time break on each MTU
