Above five are the most important concepts related to XML and SQL Server. There are many more things one has to learn but without beginners fundamentals one can’t learn the advanced concepts. Let us have small quiz and check how many of you get the fundamentals right.
1.) Which method returns an XML fragment from the source XML?
2.) Which XML data type method returns a “1” if found and “0” if the specified XPath is not found in the source XML?
3.) Which XML data type method allows you to pick the data type of the value that is returned from the source XML?
4.) Which method will not work with a SQL SELECT statement?
Now make sure that you write down all the answers on the piece of paper.
Watch following video and read earlier article over here. If you want to change the answer you still have chance.
Now compare let us check the answers and compare your answers to following answers. I am very confident you will get them correct.
Please leave your feedback in the comment area for the quiz and video. Did you know all the answers of the quiz?
