Hi Team,

How to read XML node using SQL?

I have below XML -
	<name>Joy G</name>
	<details>TYOP 1,KODF 1243</details>
</sales> "

and I need the text between node "details" in return from SQL query
Output would be - TYOP 1,KODF 1243

Any idea what the query would be

What I have tried:

SELECT @List= n.c.value('DETAILS[1]','varchar(max)')
FROM @Batches t
Cross Apply RawXml.nodes('/') n(c)
