Thank you. I am using iIT tool writing process flow. Reading xml file as input and processing through process flow. In one place I want to store the xml that I am working with in process flow to database. I can send the data from xml to sql using sql object. I want to also pass whole xml data to sql. Is that possible? what iway key I can use to grab xml in process flow to pass to sql.

Use the IFL function _flatof(false). The false will not include the XML declaration.

Something like:
 insert into table (col1, col2) values ('?id', '?xml') 

User Properties:
 id = whatever
 xml = _flatof(false)
