Hello,

I am trying to read this xml file. But whenever I get to the load part of it, it gives me this error: "The data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1"
This is the code I am working with:

publicstatic Response Message(string doc)
{
		 StringReader reader = new StringReader(doc);
		 XmlTextReader textReader = new XmlTextReader(reader);
		 XmlDocument xmlDoc = new XmlDocument();
		 xmlDoc.Load(textReader); //gets stuck here
						  return Response.Message(xmlDoc);
}

doc is the filepath of the xml document.

If anybody has any idea on how to solve this problem that would be great.

try:

publicstatic Response Message(string doc)
{
     XmlTextReader textReader = new XmlTextReader(doc);
     XmlDocument xmlDoc = new XmlDocument(); 
     xmlDoc.Load(textReader); 
     return Response.Message(xmlDoc);
}

If that doesn't work, post the xml document you're trying to read.

Yeah I fixed tehe problem. The problem was that it had the encoding and version in the xml file, when really I was trying to take the node in a file and put it into an existing xml file, and it was getting messed up because it saw that. So I took it out and it worked.

Thanks for the help though.
