Invalid character error when adding existing package

  • Informative article, thanks. However, I am getting an error when I try to add existing package to my SSIS project. "Failed to load XML from package file" "Invalid character line 820 column 24" I am not sure why. An help would be appreciated. Thanks!

  • Hi,

    The only time I've seen that error is when loading a file that contains non-printable characters within an xml value (such as a separator in an input connector definition), an issue I was assured by MS was to be fixed. I'd suggest opening the file in textpad & having a look at the hex matching that position, you may find something in there below the value x0D

  • Sure enough! Thanks worked like a charm!
