    How do I escape certain characters in xml, for parametric types?

    Thomas Richer Expert

      I'm loading some new parametric types for a new catalogue and one of the canonical values has the ampersand (&) character in it..

      I've tried the standard escape methods such as & and & which render fine in the xml editor but when I upload to Ariba I still get an error:

      Error Header Type identifier f&a has illegal characters or is missing

       

      Iy seems like it's read the characters correctly but I can't figure out what it's complaining about now?

       

      Any help is appreciated.

       

      Thanks,
