If added the closing tag, then XOG fails. Gel script is attached to the case.
Cause:
This error was caused by a syntax error in the xog portions of the gel script. The object section (Timeperiods in this case) was a child of the header section instead of the NikuDatabus section. Rev
Resolution:
Review a sample copy of the XOG being used in the Gel script which can be found in the XOG Client XML folder and fix any syntax errors.
