When attempting to run the Employee W2 XML Interface with multiple threads and trying to view the XML output, the following error is seen:

The XML page cannot be displayed

Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.


Only one top level element is allowed in an XML document. Error processing resource 'https://dev.payroll.cfahome.com/OA_CGI...

Steps to Reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Run the Employee w2 XML Interface with multiple threads
2. Try and view the XML ouput
3. Observe the error

Running the process on 1 THREAD does provide a workaround to the issue as the XML output can be viewed; however, it is not practical to run the process for 1000's of employees on 1 THREAD as it will take too long to complete
