'xsl file missing' or 'xsl parse error'

  • Article Type: General
  • Product: Aleph
  • Product Version: 21

Problem Symptoms:
The error "xsl file missing" or 'xsl parse error' appears while trying to print from task manager.
This error message is given on different kinds of output. But, the files are on the server and also in the html.pck package.

When loading the package to the GUI and unpacking it on the local drive in ..alephcomfilesxxx50PrintTemplateslng, the templates are not there.

Cause:
Additional sub directories in directory ./form_lng/

Resolution:
1. Remove additional directories from ./form_lng
2. Re-pack the Print files using util i/6 Create Print Templates Package for the PC Client

Additional Information

Example for analysis
1. When looking at the ./form_lng/html.pck package, it turns out that all files coming *before* section "PKC_FILE_BEGIN org_bas/hold-request-slip.xsl" were unpacked successfully. All files coming *after* this section were not unpacked and are missing in the local drive on the PC.

html.pck:

..
PKC_FILE_BEGIN ill-new-requests.xsl << this template exists in the local drive
<xsl:stylesheet
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>

<xsl:include href="funcs.xsl"/>

..

PKC_FILE_BEGIN org_bas/hold-request-slip.xsl << this is the problematic section
<xsl:stylesheet
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>

<xsl:include href="funcs.xsl"/>


<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:call-template name="header"/>

..

PKC_FILE_BEGIN ill-print-letter-chain.xsl << this template is missing in the local drive

<xsl:stylesheet
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>

<xsl:include href="funcs.xsl"/>

..

2. On the server, the form_eng directory has several sub-directories:

test-server-18(1) LIB01-ALEPH>>pwd
/exlibris/aleph/u18_1/lib01/form_eng
test-server-18(1) LIB01-ALEPH>>ls -1 | more
..
bas/
bas_org/
..
old/
..
org/
org_bas/
..

Removed the sub-directories from lib01/form_eng

Then, I ran util i/6 again and created a new html.pck on the server
