Possible to disable welll-formedness checking when inserting XML data.

Hi All,

Can anyone help with the following problem? I have a database which
contains a table with a 'text' field, and the text field contains an
xml document - typically 50-100K. Now I'd like to make use of SQL
Server 2005s XMLData type. To do this I have created a new field of
the 'xmldata' datatype, and run an SQL statement to update the contents
from one field to another - hoping to end up with a complete table of
xml (based on the old text field).

The problem I have is after a minute or so, it must come across an
badly-formed xml fragment because I get the following message:

Msg 9436, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
XML parsing: line 1, character 67640, end tag does not match start tag

Can I turn off the checking during the update, or is it not possible to
add badly formed data to the xmldata field. Any help appreciated as
the table runs into tens of thousands of rows, so I can't really check
the contents of each!

Many thanks,

Duncan.

Indeed, you can only pass valid XML fragments to the xml data type. They
don't have to be valid documents, that is have exactly one top-level tag,
but apart from that they must follow the XML syntax. The reason is that
the XML is stored an internal format, so SQL Server have no idea of what
do with the poorly formed XML.

Hello, I would like to know is it possible to disable drop database for sa or sysadmin. If saor sysadmin needs to drop the database , he/she may have to change status in one of the system tables (sysdatabases ?) and then only database can be dropped .
