Summary

SAXParseException

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FMP Advanced 13

Operating system version

OSX 10.9.5 and Windows Server 2008

Description of the issue

When I converted to FMP 13, I started to get the XML parsing error 3 times in a row as described in previous reports for FMP 11.  My DDR runs fine in FMP 12.  The error indicates a line and a column of 8, but there are only 7 columns in the temp file.  I can't run either an XML or HTML report.    When I run the DDR in Windows, I get a different line number than when I run it in OSX.  I've discovered that it is a layout issue specifically, but I can't locate it.  I've narrowed it down to 23 layouts, and if I delete them all, the error goes away.  I'd prefer to fix the issue rather than having to recreate these layouts.  They are all very old and haven't been edited in years, so it's perplexing why this is failing in 13 and not in 12..

Steps to reproduce the problem

Run an HTML DDR

Expected result

A Clean DDR
