Hi all,

I am trying to run a compare report for all tables in a schema between two subsystems. The compare runs fine, however, while generating the difference report I get an error which reads "The character '->' is an invalid XML character. I tried changing the encoding scheme from the Preferences however, that still did not work.

Could you please suggest how I could resolve this issue as I don't get any option to change this character to any other valid XML character.

I am using IBM Data Studio version 4.1.0.1 with Db2 for zOS version 10.

It looks like a tab character. How come you can't change it ?

Technically, not a mainframe problem. Those are Windoze screen shots.

Hi Nic,

I am trying to access Db2 for zOS from IBM Data Studio and am getting an error while generating a report in the tool.

Your post indicates that you have successfully done the DB2 part. It is the PC part that is going belly up.

If that really is a tab mark then where does it come from? Your actual data? Some process within Data Studio? Somewhere else?

Hi all,

I have tried to change the XML encoding scheme as well as the subsystems to see whether that helps in generating the report. However, I am still getting the same error. Could anyone direct me to a location where I could check where this unwanted character is coming from. When I run a report on an individual table the report gets generated as expected.


Regards,
