What version of FileMaker are you using?

ahh, well we are using Filemaker 12 and there's no way the company is going to pay for an update any time soon! Is there any way around this bug?
We actually have a version 13 which doesn't seem to have that error, my new issue is that when I import the XML, nothing happens. No error message, so I'm not really able to work out what's going on. Is there a log somewhere that tells me what happened with my request?
Hmmm, and I was a cup of caffeine short when I first posted. The known issue is with XML output of a database design report. It may or may not be the same issue. The issue itself can happen or not happen depending on whether a particular character is output as part of the XML.
