0N002 - A character cannot be mapped to a valid XML character.
Since we started using SQL more and more to build and parse XML we are running into SQL state error of 0N002 - A character cannot be mapped to a valid XML character. Our only known fix for this is to do a regular expression statement on each column that has or could have an invalid xml character in it. Could we have a system setting that automatically ignored any invalid xml character when building the xml. This would be better than throwing the error?
Our automated process to build and ship out XML data from the DB is failing on characters that are considered invalid for XML. Having the process ignore the characters and not fail is a better alternative to it failing. Coding to handle this situation is very time consuming and also taxing on the DB server.
