SIS loader gives: The reference to entity "M" must end with the ';' delimiter.

Question

SIS Patron Loader fails with: "The reference to entity "M" must end with the ';' delimiter."

Answer

Based on our experience, the XML input file has a special character. It needs to be escaped. 

 

Solution documented at: https://developers.exlibrisgroup.com...cial-Character

 

 

Additional Information

To find the "offensive" character:

1. Find and unzip the input file

2. Open the XML input file with an XML reader such as XML Notepad, it will detect the problematic character (e.g. http://screencast.com/t/SQGMVZVzzsUz)

3. Now that we have the line number, open the file with NotePad++, go to that row and fix it (e.g.: http://screencast.com/t/jmoPZgHSG).
