Ok so I have a large SDE geodatabase that I exported to an XML Workspace Document. I tried to importing it again into a file geodatabase to test if the export worked correctly and got the following error:
Import xml data failed
FDO error: -2147186428
[XML parse error: Illegal xml character
[Line: 23612914, column: 1043].]
Could this be from an invalid character somewhere in my data? Is there a list of invalid characters for XML workspace documents? And is there an easy way to get to the line and column in the error message to see what it is?
Also are there any file size limitations, my XML is nearly 12gb? Or could it be possible there was just an error in the exporting process?
Any thoughts appreciated.
