I am trying (with SQL) to convert an XML type column to a database table. I can do this using XMLTable succesfully until I come across multiple repeating groups.

When I encounter the first node that can repeat I can manage to handle this but if withing this repeating group I encounter another it results in a cartesian join type situation.

What I guess I need is a mechanism for starting at the lowest level and working upwards so that for each of the lowest level rows I get one database row.

Is there any functions that will help with this type of situation?

Many thanks
