xml data handling with from_field


The table I have to query has an XML-structure in one of the Attributes.

I can get the XML-Content using


SELECT ID, Type, CAST(CAST(Content as VARBINARY(MAX)) as XML) as SubAttributes

How can I have the "Content" be further parsed to get the XML-information into a QV-Table? Read about the FROM_FIELD instruction but can not figure out proper syntax.


LOAD [Query/CommandText] as CommandText

?? FROM_FIELD SubAttributes  -- does not work

Unfortunately did not get an answer to a similar question asked a few weeks ago.

Thanks, Juerg

I had a similar issue and had to use textbetween to get the info we wanted.


TextBetween(Textbetween(SubAttributes, '<Query>','</Query>'),'<CommandText>','</CommandText>')
