  • Thanks but it could be better if you can help me in exact query

    I were trying

    UPDATE [PartnerAppointmentQueryResponse]  
    Set PartnerApptQueryResponseType.modify
    ('replace value of
    (/PartnerApptQueryResponse[@xmlns])[1] with "http://idealliance.org/maildat/Specs/md091/mailxml80B/mailxml"
    Where ConsigneeApptID = 'fg'

    but it is not working and i am getting error

    XQuery [PartnerAppointmentQueryResponse.PartnerApptQueryResponseType.modify()]: The target of 'replace value of' must be a non-metadata attribute or an element with simple typed content, found 'element(PartnerApptQueryResponse,xdt:untyped) ?'
