"XML data is invalid according to the schema" after running Comment Merger

Aug 19, 2014 at 7:48 PM

I ran the CommentMerger and when I tried to open the resulting document, it gives me a warning saying "We're sorry. We can't open xxx.docx because we found a problem wiht its contents. The XML data is invalid according to the schema. Location: Part:/word/document.xml, Line: 1, Column:0. When I click OK, it says Word found unreadable content in xxx.docx. Do you want to recover the contents... and after clicking Yes, it was able to show the document. Does anyone else experience similar issues and/or have a solution for this?

Thanks a lot.

I can provide sample documents if needed.

Found a solution.

It seems the code from CommentMerger.zip on this page works, while the code contained in the PowerTools 2.2 download does not.
