in reply to Using Perl to go from XML to EXCEL

I'm not familiar with some of the modules you have used, so do not have a definitive reply. I was also puzzled why the error message mentions a problem at line 55 in a 35 (or so) line program: did you show us the actual program you ran?

It does sound, though, that this is likely to be a problem with the input data, presumably an unmatched tag. Generally the line number in the error message of parsers represents the latest possible place the error lies--i.e. it may be earlier than the fragment you show. If the error is not obvious by inspection, some XML "well-formedness" checker may show you the problem. Also check against the DTD or XML schema if the XML document has one.

[SwaJime]: Ran into an interesting piece of code today ...
[SwaJime]: select name,status, status2 from __ where status & status < 13 and status2 & 16 <> 16
[SwaJime]: I'm thinking that looks messed up. Sorry for OT ... but I know y'all are smart :-)
[SwaJime]: I expected items to not be selected if status was 0 ... but they were selected
[SwaJime]: any thoughts?
