Unable to fix to MySQL script

I’m quite new to MYSQL. I think issue is with the 'for xml' part in the query below.

Any Help is really appreciated.

insert into AuditPolicy
    (
    RenewalrootId ,
    ModifiedBy,
    ModifiedDate,
    xmldata
    )
    select
    par_RootId,
    par_ModifiedBy,
    NOW(3),
    (select * from Policy as p
    where p.RenewalRootId = par_RootId for XML
    limit 1
    raw('PolicyData'),root('Policy'))

Hi there,

I believe that MySQL does not support the FOR XML syntax. You should be able to store the XML in a CLOB or text column and select it as normal without specifying the FOR XML statement.

Alternatively, you could consider switching from MySQL to PostgreSQL for example as it supports native XML datatype.
