I inherited a console app that reads in an xml file. However, when I run the app, I get an error: "There is an error in XML document (2, 2)." The inner exception error is {"<ArrayOfQF_DOW_Weight xmlns=''> was not expected."}. I am attaching the xml file for viewing. I am a xml newbie so not real familiar.

thanks. WeightsAndAdders.xml

If this is strictly XML related can I move this to more appropriate zones?

public class QfDowWeights
      {
            public List<QfDowWeight> DayOfWeekWeights { get; set; }
            public QfDowWeights()
            {
                  var dataFilePath = Environment.CurrentDirectory + "\\WeightsAndAdders.xml";
                  var serializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(List<QfDowWeight>));

                  using (var fs = new FileStream(dataFilePath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read))
                  {
                try
                {

                    DayOfWeekWeights = serializer.Deserialize(fs) as List<QfDowWeight>;
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                    throw (ex);
                }
                        fs.Close();

List<QfDowWeight> has the three properties. dayofweek, lookbackday and weight....taking the xml data and putting it into list of the QfDowWeight object.

I would like to move this to more appropriate zones.  It does not appear to be Oracle or ASP (the zone you selected is straight ASP not ASP.Net) related.
