Why is the Conversion Assistant Failing with XML-20109: (Fatal Error) When Generating PDF After Upgrading From 10g to 11g? (Doc ID 2071624.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 28, 2015

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version to [Release 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After using the Conversion Assistant to upgrade reports from 10g to 11g, the following error is being generated when generating PDF output for report:

org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; lineNumber: 1; columnNumber: 8; : XML-20109: (Fatal Error) PI with the name 'xml' can occur only in the beginning of the document.

Need to determine what syntax can be run to identify the sql that is failing.
