I am trying out TDD and creating fake objects, I want to use XML from the test DB. Thus I want to create XML of the results of a query, which I am running in SQL Server Management Studio.
But I am unable to find how to get the results as XML in SQL Server Management Studio. Is this possible? And How?
You can use "
FOR XML" to output the results of a query to XML.
SELECT o.Order_Number AS 'OrderNumber', --Element o.Order_Total AS '@OrderTotal' --Attribute FROM dbo.ORDER o FOR XML PATH('ORDER'), ROOT('ORDERS') --Path / Root let you formulate the xml the way you want
