usually this job runs in the am, but there was a problem and now I"m trying to run it again. I'm thinking the problem could be with XML data type. does anyone have experience with docxml.value? select d.xx, docxml.value (' (//IsXXX)[3]' ,'varchar(5)' ) as IsXXXAns, docxml.value (' (//Name)[3]' ,'varchar(55)' ) as NameAns3,

I have several docxml.value statements in this query.
