TransformXML Error

I am trying to transform XML with an XSL style sheet.

I read the XML and the XSL from a database, and then need to transform them together to generate HTML output.

When I try to load the XSL string I get the error:
System.UriFormatException was unhandled by user code
  Message="Invalid URI: The Uri string is too long."

CODE
//-----------------------
            XmlDocument oXml = new XmlDocument();
            XslCompiledTransform oXsl = new XslCompiledTransform();

            string transformedXML = string.Empty;
            string xsl = GetXLSByName(name);
            string xml = GetXMLbyShop(shopID, viewTime);
           
            oXml.LoadXml(xml);
            xsl = xsl.Replace(System.Environment.NewLine, "<br/>");
            oXsl.Load(xsl);

            oXsl.Transform(xml, transformedXML);

XslCompiledTransform.Load (String) - Loads and compiles the style sheet located at the specified URI.
In your case it looks like you are providing the content of and not the path to the style sheet.

if you getting no return you probably have problem within your style sheet. It is not matching data in your XML document. I would output both the xml doc and xsl and use VS IDE to debug it.
