    dear all,

    please help me with this query that i still can't find the right solution

    i have this query to generate a xml file:

    declare @output xml;

    set @output =
    select 'CPAW3' as '@fileType',
    upper(VCLUBCD) 'clubId',
    upper(VCLUBNM) 'clubName',
    convert(varchar(10), DCLUB, 120)+' 00:00:00' 'tglBerdiri',
    upper(VCTYCLB) 'kotaDomisili',
    upper(VPICCLB) 'ketuaClub',
    upper(VJNSCLB) 'jenisClub',
    from master_club
    for xml path('row'), type
    for xml path('dataReq')

    select @output

    the result is:

    <dataReq fileType="CPAW3">
    <clubName>HONDA TIGER MAILING LIST</clubName>
    <tglBerdiri>1978-10-25 00:00:00</tglBerdiri>
    <clubName>SUZUKI CLUB</clubName>
    <tglBerdiri>2002-10-05 00:00:00</tglBerdiri>

    as you can see that in second row, column "kotaDomilisi" is ommited from the XML, this is because the value is NULL.
    need ur help, how i can deal with NULL column "kotaDomisili", so it can be written like

    i had used ELEMENTS XSINIL, to product XML tag like <kotaDomisili xsi:nil="true" />

    but the system still won't accept it.

    help me please...thx in advance...

    <P mce_keep="true">Did you map the columns at the metadata level for XML, here is the example about XML:</P><P>Here is an XML representation of the same table using a forest of elements to represent each table: </P><P mce_keep="true"><BR>&nbsp;</P><P><IMG height=214 alt="XML representation of the same table using a forest of elements to represent each table" src="http://www.stylusstudio.com/images/figures/sql_xml_xml_representation.gif" width=281> </P><P mce_keep="true"><BR>&nbsp;</P><P>These mappings are also defined on the metadata level. For instance, SQL/XML defines how the datatypes of SQL are represented in the equivalent XML Schema. Each SQL type is derived from an equivalent built-in W3C XML Schema type. Where needed, facets are used to represent constraints added to those of the base type:</P><P mce_keep="true"><BR>&nbsp;</P><P><IMG height=157 alt="SQL/XML defines how SQL datatypes&#13;&#10;are represented in the equivalent XML Schema" src="http://www.stylusstudio.com/images/figures/sql_xml_xml_schema.gif" width=347> </P><P mce_keep="true"><BR>&nbsp;</P><P>As mentioned above, there are two ways to represent null values.
