Hi,


saw the topic here http://www.orafaq.com/forum/t/45411/0/

about tranforming a clob to a xmltype , but was wondering if it's possible to get a result without a docType


instead of
<?xml version="1.0"?>
 <EMP>
   <EMPNO>221</EMPNO>
   <ENAME>John</ENAME>
 </EMP>


only

<EMP>
   <EMPNO>221</EMPNO>
   <ENAME>John</ENAME>
 </EMP>



and thanks

Don't put it in the original string.
In the topic you refer, Frank did:
SQL> INSERT INTO clobtab VALUES (
  2  '<?xml version="1.0"?>
  3   <EMP>
  4     <EMPNO>221</EMPNO>
  5     <ENAME>John</ENAME>
  6   </EMP>');

So if you don't put the first tag in the string you have not in the data.
Or do you mean something else, in this case post a complete test case then we can see what is your input and what do you want to get.

Regards
Michel

SELECT  XMLTYPE(
                (
                 select  XMLSerialize(
                                      CONTENT
                                      xmlelement("data",(select 1 from dual))
                                     )
                   from  dual

So why not directly:
SQL> select XMLTYPE (
  2   XMLSerialize   (
  3     CONTENT
  4      xmlelement("data",(select 1 from dual))
  5    ))
  6  from dual
  7  /
XMLTYPE(XMLSERIALIZE(CONTENTXMLELEMENT("DATA",(SELECT1FROMDUAL))))
-------------------------------------------------------------------
<data>1</data>
