Sahil Malik explains tsql's new feature "for xml".
After having read through Rob's post about "scripting objects" and commented on it I saw that Sahil Malik had written a great post about the "For XML" feature of SQL Server's TSQL!
He questioned why so few actually used it, when it obviously (according to Sahil that is) is a very powerful feature.
I fully believe it's simply because very few are actually aware of its existence - which is odd because it's published all over the place - but hey, horses for courses i say.
Anyways, good work Sahil on putting the techie blabber into conversational english for those that are eloquently challenged (eg. he has simplified the explanation somewhat).
