Inserting data to xml column

P: 366
HI Friends

i am using sqlserver2005 .
I have column in my table with xml DataType .and while i am inserting data into it ,if '&' is there in data it is giving xml parser error as

"XML parsing: line 1, character 15, illegal name character"

i have idea that xml parsing & is represented as 'amp' , but i cannot do that
my requirement is to insert the data as it is.

ex:of my insert statement is

insert into dbo.XMLTest values ('~ABC; XXX ABC& !ABC');

is there any alternative way to insert "~ABC; XXX ABC& !ABC" in to xml column

Can you get the value into a nvarchar variable, manipulate it and store it back? Just make sure your string is a valid xml.
