How to extract XML-information from a column in SQL-database

Who can help me with the following?

 

In a SQL-database the table Invoice contains the field Invoice, with multiple rows in XML-information.

 

My question: How can I extract the column as a separate XML-file?

 

Additional: The information in every row in Power BI is cut off at 1024 characters. I hope this will be solved together  with the solution to question 1.

 

The information looks like this:

 

InvoiceID

CustomerID

Invoice

EFF11184-8E4D-4DF2-BAFD-000396BC1357
