1 solution

A statement like this (based on the infamous Northwind database):
SQL
SELECT
    [EmployeeID] AS '@ID',
    [LastName], [FirstName],
    [Title],
    [BirthDate], [HireDate]
FROM
    [dbo].[Employees]
FOR XML PATH('Employee'), ROOT('Employees')


Output like this:

XML
<Employees>
  <Employee ID="1">
    <LastName>Davolio</LastName>
    <FirstName>Nancy</FirstName>
    <Title>Sales Representative</Title>
    <BirthDate>1948-12-08T00:00:00</BirthDate>
    <HireDate>1992-05-01T00:00:00</HireDate>
  </Employee>
  <Employee ID="2">
    <LastName>Fuller</LastName>
    <FirstName>Andrew</FirstName>
    <Title>Vice President, Sales</Title>
    <BirthDate>1952-02-19T00:00:00</BirthDate>
    <HireDate>1992-08-14T00:00:00</HireDate>
  </Employee>
