BizTalk 2004 handling of XML inside Text field from SQL Server

BizTalk 2004 handling of XML inside Text field from SQL Server

BizTalk 2004 handling of XML inside Text field from SQL Server


I'm new to BizTalk and am having a tough time accessing a row in a table having a text column. The text field has XML data stored in it. Example:

   <REQUEST_TS>5/4/2005 10:36:25 AM</REQUEST_TS>

When I use BizTalk 2004 to acces this data, I use a query:
select XML from xml_index where transaction_id = 000001 for XML Auto

The results get thrown into a xml file like so:

<xml_index xml="&lt;TRANSACTION&gt;&lt;TYPE&gt;SOME_TRANSACTION&lt;/TYPE&gt;&lt;ACTION&gt;INSERT&lt;/ACTION&gt;&lt;SERVER_NAME&gt;NN.N.NN.NNN&lt;/SERVER_NAME&gt;&lt;REQUEST_TS&gt;11/4/2004 9:40:27 AM&lt;/REQUEST_TS&gt;

I need to convey the actual xml file in the text field AS IS.

In desperate need of help.
Thanks, A
