Lotus Notes DXL Import Errors

Hello everyone,

I am currently using Lotus Notes 8.5.2 and working with importing a large number of DXL files for a customer.  For the most part, we have had success, however, a few thousand of the DXL files are producing errors in the DXL importer.  I am including the errors below.  I cannot attach the actual DXL files as they contain sesitive information.  I also cannot change the physical DXL file, so I would be looking for options to work around it, if there is not a solid fix.

Field Name: IMPORTERERR
Data Type: Text
Data Length: 326 bytes
Seq Num: 1
Dup Item ID: 0
Field Flags: SUMMARY 

"<?xml version='1.0'?>
<DXLImporterLog>
<fatalerror source='NotesInputSource' line='37' column='41' id='6922'>Unexpected richtext element child element: picture</fatalerror>
<warning id='7031'>Import operation incomplete; 0 notes(s) imported successfully</warning>
<error>DXL importer operation failed</error>
</DXLImporterLog>"

There is apparently a bug with it and you may need to to install FP2 for R8.5.2 or to upgrade to R8.5.3 to fix it.
Alternatively, you may contact Lotus Support for a fix.

AFAIK, unlike one might expect, the DXL importer and exporter aren't 100% compatible.

An example of an element that will fail is an agent with a selection formula. Won't work.

A fix?? Sorry, don't have one.

Hi cohalex,

Looks like that will fix the large base64 issue, but maybe not the element issue, which unfortunately is a bit more widespread!

Thanks for the link, will do that now.
