Unable to select from XML column - illegal character

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :

I have a database with an XML column.  During the course of normal operations, a record was inserted into this table which completed successfully.  However, when we run a report on this table and attempt to select the data back out of that column, we receive the following error:

From the a stored procedure -

Msg 6611, Level 16, State 1, Procedure shrrptAuditReport, Line 19

The XML data type is damaged.

From a select against the table -

An error occurred while executing batch. Error message is: '?', hexadecimal value 0xDC29, is an invalid character. (NOTE: The ? actually appears as a square in SSMS)

Unable to select any stored procedure while creating TableAdapters in wizard


I'm using VS 2008 and SQL 2008.

I have created the tables and the stored procedures in SQL 2008.

In VS 2008, I created DataSet1.xsd in App_Code and created the connectionString in web.config file.

Then when I go into the DataSet1.xsd and try to add a TableAdapter, strange things happened.

First I chose the data connection, then selected "Use existing stored procedure", then there was nothing listed in the dropdownlists (in Select, Insert, Update, or Delete). 

I'm sure the connectionString is correct because if I choose "Use SQL statement" and type in a "select * from mytable1", the TableAdapter can be created without any problem.

Any suggestions?

BDC Column with Ability to Select Multiple Values


Use Case:

We are creating a storage location for technical product articles. These will be SharePoint publishing pages. Each page will have metadata assigned to it to make it searchable by properties. The possible values for one of the columns (Part Number) could potentially be sourced by our ERP system. I'd like to do this to eliminate the possibility of free-text entry errors, but there are probably over 10,000 parts so a drop-down list isn't feasible.


Ideal Situation:

The end user enters the part number and clicks a button to verify it against a BDC entry from our ERP system. If they weren't sure on the part number they needed, they could do a lookup from that metadata entry screen. They'd need to have the option to add multiple part numbers as one technical product article could reference multiple part numbers.



Is BDC an option for all of this or am I looking at a custom metadata solution? I thought I heard along the way that BDC only supported one value choice, but I couldn't find a verification for that in the forums.



Use BDC data in list as multi-select column

I have a document library that uses values from another system for its metadata.  Right now, we copy the values from the primary system into SharePoint so users can choose them.  I want to find a way to use the BDC connection that I have set up to automatically pull those values.  The problem is that the current metadata is set to multi-select.  So, I have a file that is in the library and it can be used for multiple clients - clients is a column in my library and users can select many entries.  When I set up a column to pull BDC data, it only allows single entry.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Unable to translate Unicode character \uD8D6 at index 5 to specified code page.

I' have the error "Unable to translate Unicode character \uD8D6 at index 5 to specified code page." when I call a remote service, using a method that uploads some data (basically data readed from WMI and from Win Registry on the client host) from the client to the server.

The client is an exe, compiled in .NET 3.5 I've tried to set "textEncoding="utf-16"" on the binding, either on server and on client, but still the same. I've no idea about a solution :( Any idea? Thanks  

Unable to Bind a CheckBox to an Oracle column

The code below works great in SQL Server with a BIT column.  How do you get it to work in Oracle?  I've tried number(1), char(1)...etc but nothing works!  Using Eval is no good becuse that breaks the Update. <asp:CheckBox ID="cbxStatus" runat="server" Checked='<%# Bind("status") %>' /> Always get this error: System.InvalidCastException: "Specified cast is not valid".  Anyone know the trick to making this work with Bind?
