Re: error while reading xml file

I would imagine - though can only guess as I have no information to work with - that at line 69, column 311, there is a character that does not fit into the character set you are using, or that your XML is not a proper XML file.  The former would be my guess, look at the file in textpad or using a hex editor, you will likely find a strange symbol there.

Re: error while reading xml file

Probable cause: your SAS is not configured for UTF support, but the XML contains UTF characters.
