I created an RR pair derived object. However, when I go to create the tables I get the following error: 

com.ca.tdm.shredder.extractor.ExtractorException: com.ca.tdm.shredder.extractor.ExtractorException: There was an error when trying to parse the XML File -> C:\ProgramData\CA\CA Test Data Manager Portal\\objects\projects_9355\versions_9356\Elig_Ver\uploadedschema\request\1-req.xml. Error: ParseError at [row,col]:[10,3] Message: The markup in the document following the root element must be well-formed. 

I check the XML syntax using notepad ++ and it says it is valid. The position it points out is the closing tag of an element. I do not see any issues with the structure of the XML.

CA Test Data Manager (TDM)- Portal

If the syntax in Notepad++ (or a similar tool) is valid, we suggest you save the XML from that tool and try the scenario again.


1. Open the XML file in Notepad ++ (or a similar tool).

2. Save the file.

3. Use this new XML file in the derived object.

4. Create the database table again. 

- The table should be created without error.
