HI!

I'd need to load data from an XML(1.0) file into a SQL Server 2012 Table. It has multiple request and response data elements. What would be the best possible approach in terms of logic and performance. All the data needs to be loaded into just one table.The filename and elements should not be hardcoded.

Any logic/code is greatly appreciated.

Thanks a million in advance for your help!

Is there anyway we can load XML file into a SQL server table, using SQL Script and SSIS without using bulk load, as we do not have bulk load permissions on the servers.l

BULK command it's also available in T-SQL so you won't need a command line tool like bcp.
INSERT INTO XMLTable(XMLColumn)
SELECT CONVERT(XML, ImportedColumn)
FROM OPENROWSET(BULK 'C:\DataFile.xml', SINGLE_BLOB) AS x

Open in new window

@amukta,

what Vitor suggested in comment ID: 41791412 should work for you as it runs well in SSIS package as well. but it also depends on how your XML looks like so that you may build in the logic how you extract the data from your XML file.

You'll need INSERT and ADMINISTER BULK OPERATIONS permissions to run the BULK command.
