Problem 13

XML file exists but IDF cannot find record/form:

This behavior can occur due to many issues, particularly setup and configuration issues both to do with the UD6/CMtool Driver, and the configuration management tool being used. In particular the following points should be checked:

If all other configuration issues are resolved, another cause for the error may be that the XML file has become corrupted. The easiest way to check this is to load the XML file into Internet Explorer 5. Provided that the XSL stylesheet is also available, Internet Explorer will parse the file and check it for errors, and if successful, it will display it formatted into an HTML report, eg:

If other XML files display like this, but one particular XML file gives an error, it probably indicates corruption of that file. Please e-mail the XML file to consultants@march-hare.com so that it can be diagnosed. Please also provide as complete a description as possible of the work that was performed on the file prior to the corruption occurring. If it is possible to provide an export for this object from the ORIGINAL UNCORRUPTED system using the IDF, that will help the diagnosis considerably.

If the corruption is minor, or has been caused by manually editing the XML file (ie: not in the IDF), it should be possible to use the error message that Internet Explorer 5 provides to diagnose the problem and correct it. For instance, this error was caused by the invalidity of the meta character &lt (it should be < ).

The auxiliary program FIXUD6.EXE may also be used to repair small problems in the XML files.
