How can I save data from xml to sql 2008?

How can I save data from xml to sql 2008?

SQL table:

[dbo].[Position](
[ID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
[ImoNo] [numeric](8, 0) NOT NULL,
[sid] [numeric](5, 0) NULL,
[VesselName] [nvarchar](20) NULL,
[time] [datetime] NOT NULL,
[lat] [numeric](9, 2) NULL,
[lon] [numeric](9, 2) NULL,
[sog] [numeric](9, 2) NULL,
[cog] [numeric](9, 2) NULL,
[hdg] [numeric](9, 2) NULL,
[eta] [datetime] NULL,
[NextPort] [nvarchar](20) NULL)

I tried with this query, but I get error msg

'XQuery [nodes()]: The names "SOAP-ENV" and "ns1:" do not denote a namespace.'


DECLARE @xml XML
DECLARE @character VARCHAR(MAX)

SELECT @character = x.y
FROM OPENROWSET( BULK 'C:\Users\Nale\Desktop\POS.xml', SINGLE_CLOB ) x(y)

-- Fix up the ampersand
SELECT @xml = REPLACE( @character, '&', '&amp;' )


-- Get the tally information

XML file is on local disk.

Will I use some sql query, or what is the best way to save data from xml to sql table?

Answer
  1. Make XML valid
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

        <ns1:GetPositionsResponse>
            <body>
                <result>Found 2 vessels.</result>
                <success>true</success>

2. Add namespaces to your query

DECLARE @xml XML
DECLARE @character VARCHAR(MAX)

SELECT @xml = x.y
FROM OPENROWSET( BULK 'C:\Users\Nale\Desktop\POS.xml', SINGLE_CLOB ) x(y)


-- Get the tally information
;WITH XMLNAMESPACES  (
    'http://www.fleettracker.de/api/1.0' as ns1,
    'http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance' AS xsi,
    'http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/' AS e
)
SELECT
    x.y.value('(ns1:imono/text())[1]', 'NUMERIC (8,0)') ImoNo,
    x.y.value('(ns1:sid/text())[1]', 'NUMERIC (5,0)') sid,
    x.y.value('(ns1:VesselName/text())[1]', 'NVARCHAR (20)') VesselName,
    x.y.value('(ns1:pasttrack/time/text())[1]', 'DATETIME') time,
    x.y.value('(ns1:pasttrack/lat/text())[1]', 'NUMERIC (9,2)') lat,
    x.y.value('(ns1:pasttrack/lon/text())[1]', 'NUMERIC (9,2)') lon,
    x.y.value('(ns1:pasttrack/sog/text())[1]', 'NUMERIC (9,2)') sog,
    x.y.value('(ns1:pasttrack/cog/text())[1]', 'NUMERIC (9,2)') cog,
    x.y.value('(ns1:pasttrack/hdg/text())[1]', 'NUMERIC (9,2)') hdg,
    x.y.value('(ns1:pasttrack/eta/text())[1]', 'DATETIME') eta,
    x.y.value('(ns1:pasttrack/NextPort/text())[1]', 'NVARCHAR (20)') NextPort
FROM @xml.nodes('e:Envelope/e:Body/ns1:GetPositionsResponse/body/shipsWithPositions') AS x(y)
