Notice! This page describes the nature of the error using a hypothetical example and not the erroneous data of the input test file. You should however be able to apply this information to your error case.

Error Description:

The syntax of the XML file validated is erroneous, i.e the file could not be parsed as valid XML. There could be several reasons for this, for example:

  • Duplicated XML declaration
    • Fatal Error The processing instruction target matching "[xX][mM][lL]" is not allowed.
    • You can fix this by removing the extra declaration (i.e.  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> )
  • Missing closing tag for an element
