Resolving the problem

If you have an existing table and want to modify it to correct the problem, refer to the steps in the following technote:

"Modifying an existing wizard-generated table to avoid the "There was a problem retrieving XML data" error" (#1306106)

To avoid the error condition when creating new tables, you can use any of the methods below to resolve the XML error in Webform Server. This technote provides an index to a collection of technotes that demonstrate different ways to avoid this problem.

  1. You can use the Table Wizard to create a table with a Remove button beside each row, but without a pane around the row. For instructions, see "Using the Lotus Forms Designer to create a table from scratch with one Remove button per row" (#1316301)

  2. You can build a table from scratch, without the wizard, and create your own Remove button beside each row. For instructions, see "Using the Lotus forms Designer to create a table from scratch with one Remove button per row" (1316301)

  3. You can use the wizard to build a table with a single Remove button, and with checkboxes at the start of each row; checked rows will be deleted when the Remove button outside the table is clicked. For instructions, see "Using the Lotus Forms Designer Table Wizard to create a table with a checkbox on each row to select row for removal". (#3136307)
