    Hi Sangad,

    declare @friends table (id int, name varchar(50))
    insert @friends (id, name)
              select  2, 'Locke Lamorra'
    union all select  6, 'Calo Sanzo'
    union all select 10, 'Galdo Sanzo'
    union all select 14, 'Jean Tannen'
    declare @xml xml
    set @xml = '<student><row id="10"/></student>'
    select  f.name
    from    @xml.nodes('/student/row') as table_alias(column_alias)
    join    @friends f
    on      table_alias.column_alias.value('(/student/row/@id)[1]', 'int') = f.id

    Best Regards,
