Various Purchasing Reports are being updated in the system administrator responsibility - to change the output from text to XML.

This is required in order for the report to produce XML output which can then be used in the BI Publisher to Create an RTF template.

Upon running the report that has the output changed from Text to XML - it is failing and ending in Error.

Replication Steps:

1. System Administrator - Concurrent/Program/Define

 - Alter the output type from Text to XML

2. Run the report in Purchasing - Reports/Run

3. Find the report ended in error.


As seen from the log:
