Error in Data Flow Task [XML Data Source]

Hi,

I have an XML file which I want to use as a Data Source to generate a report but he XML file has a complex data collected from different data sources. So I cannot use this file directly as a Data Source.

I was trying to convert this file to SQL Server Tables using SSIS but I got the above error.

Is there anyway, I can convert or break XML file into SQL Server Tables or simplify it so that it can be used to generate a report?


Thank you. Error Screenshot

Hi Deepak,

TRy to set  

complexType mixed="false"

currently it might be

 complexType mixed="true"

That might helps..

Hi Brichsoft,

Thanks for your reply. But I don't have "complexType mixed" in my XML file.

Should I add "complexType mixed="false"" in the file?

Hello Brichsoft,

It didn't work. It's giving me same error.

I am attaching sample XML file. It contains records of students and I need to generate Transcript(Report) from the data. In the file there is information for 2 students and their grades. I have 100s of students listed in original file.

when I try with your XML file there is no error on XML source,
did you used Generate XSD ? or you used an existing XSD?

are you sure that the file you uploaded here is exactly what you have problem with it?
