>Read an XML file and store it in SQL data base and modify the data base whenever the XML file modified.

Read this article - SQLXML.

thanks all, with discussion with my peers i got my solution and here u r to see it:

1. read an XML file and store it in SQL data base and
Sol. Using of XmlDocument, XmlNodeList and XmlNode classes to manipulate the XML file

2. modify the data base whenever the XML file modified,
Sol. Using of FileSystemWatcher Class to watch file modification.

i created a table on data base on SQL server with columns has the same names like XML file attributes
Sol. Using of SqlConnection and SqlCommand to manipulate the SQL Database.

if u need the whole Sol., Don't hesitate to ask me :)....

Dear h612, kindly find the Sol. here, This Sol. is for my program u can customize this Sol.to fit urs,

1. i created a table on data base on SQL server with columns has the same names like XML file attributes
Sol. Using of SqlConnection and SqlCommand to manipulate the SQL Database.

string connectionString = @"Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\Database1.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True";

SqlConnection sqlConn = new SqlConnection(connectionString);
sqlConn.Open();

SqlCommand sqlCmnd = new SqlCommand();
sqlCmnd.Connection = sqlConn;

2. read an XML file and store it in SQL data base and
Sol. Using of XmlDocument, XmlNodeList and XmlNode classes to manipulate the XML file

string sXMLFilePath = @"C:\car_task.xml";

XmlDocument document = new XmlDocument();
document.Load(sXMLFilePath);

Car MyCar = new Car();
XmlNodeList xmlNodeList = document.SelectNodes("SYSTEM/message");
foreach (XmlNode node in xmlNodeList)
{
	MyCar.CarID = int.Parse(node["CarsId"].InnerText);
	MyCar.CarModel = node["CarsModel"].InnerText;
	MyCar.CarColor = node["CarsColor"].InnerText;

	sqlCmnd.CommandText = "INSERT INTO CARS (CarsID,CarsModel,CarsColor) " +
		"Values(" + MyCar.CarID + ",'" + MyCar.CarModel + "','" + MyCar.CarColor + "')";
	sqlCmnd.ExecuteNonQuery();
}

3. modify the data base whenever the XML file modified,
Sol. Using of FileSystemWatcher Class to watch file modification.

u can use this link to read about the FileSystemWatcher Class

Hoping this is Helpful :) ....
