Read XML errors when Space in Node Name

asked on November 14

If I have a node with Spaces like <Invoice Number>111</Invoice Number>, the ReadXML throws an error. Is this a known issue please? Thanks.

Xml element names cannot have spaces in them.  XML like "<Invoice Number>" is interpreted as an open tag called "Invoice" with a value-less attribute called "Number".  "</Invoice Number>" is not legal XML - it has a similar interpretation, but close tags can't have attributes.

There are ways of encoding forbidden characters in XML attributes, but there is no workaround for elements.  You'll need whoever is producing the XML to update their program.
