Diagnosing the problem

You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 21 and create a Polygon Overlay Map chart with its own viztemplate stylesheet and its own Map template *.smz file. The chart is created fine on
Graphboard Template Chooser or via Syntax with the same files in release IBM SPSS Statistics 20.0.0.1.
However, in release 21 the chart is not displayed on the viewer. Instead you see an error:


"com.spss.vis.exception.VisualizationParseException: The XML could not be parsed"

Resolving the problem

This was reported to IBM SPSS Development. As a work around either export the viewer file to PDF, Word or Excel or export the chart as image only in a chart format (e.g. PNG). Then the chart will be displayed.
