How to pass xml file to stored Procedure

I Wrote a stored procedure in SQL Server:

CREATE PROCEDURE InsertXML2 @xmlFile varchar(2000) AS
DECLARE @iTree int
FROM OPENXML (@iTree, 'n:Registration/n:DefaultEnrolment',3)
EXEC sp_xml_removedocument @iTree

How can I pass the XML file to this stored Procedure in VB.NET?

Thanks a lot

Did you solve the problem?

If not, please try to use a stored procedure like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. (
  4. )
  5. AS
  6. DECLARE @xmlHandle INT
  8. EXEC sp_xml_preparedocument @xmlHandle OUTPUT, @xmlDoc
  10. SELECT *
  11. FROM OPENXML (@xmlHandle, '/P/C', 2) WITH
  12. (
  13. MajorCode VARCHAR(10) './MJ',
  14. MinorCode VARCHAR(10) './MI'
  15. )
  16. )OXML
  17. EXEC sp_xml_removedocument @xmlHandle 
(the sample is taken from this link)

Thank you for your reply.

I still have the problem to pass the xml file.

I knew xml file's path and file name, is there any way I can just pass these information rather than pass the content of the xml file?

Actually, I have tried to pass the the content of the xml file, but the problem is, in vb.net, I couldn't find any way to read entire file into a string.

I have tried streamreader, xmldocument, xmlreader, but they only read the text part of xml.

E.g. for a simple xml file:


The output is only "title1", but I want the whole thing.

Is there any way I can do this?

Thank you again.

See this link.

I just want to ask. Instead of loading the XML file, is there a way wherein the stored procedure can directly access the contents of the file? Because I'm worried that frequent loading of the XML file (everytime a user needs some data) may affect the server's performance. What I'm currently thinking of right now is to load the contents of the file to the database. But the problem is, the contents of the XML file changes daily and I'm not sure if we are allowed to use this solution.

Can anyone advise?

Thank you very much.
