Error description

  • Problem
    RIF packages can fail to import with the error 'SAX Parsing Fata
    l Error Failed to import RIF'.
    
    The cause seems to be a combination of Word imported bullets, an
    d bullets created in DOORS. The result in the XML is missing tag
    s.
    
    Introduced in 9.2.0.3.
    
    To Reproduce
    To recreate from scratch
    
     - open the attached word doc and export it to DOORS
     - add an extra bullet tothe object text in the 3rd object
     - save and close the module
     - create a RIF definition using the module (I selected 'Lock al
    l data', but I don't think that's important)
     - export the definition
     - import the definition
    
    Or, you could just import the attached mfn2.xml
    
    Possible Workarounds
    I wouldn't like to recommend on manual modification of the XML,
    several tags seem to be missing.

    ****************************************************************
    The problem was caused by a change to how the RIF XHTML data
    was exported. When these files are imported, the import
    fails with the error: SAX Parsing Fatal Error Failed to
    import RIF.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To prevent this from occurring for files that are exported
    in the future, the export was fixed.
