I was creating a report schedule for the user. The user provided text to add to the email body of the scheduled report. After pasting the text and clicking OK, it resulted in Error PRS-TRS-0906 The “VALIDATE” transform instruction could not validate the given XML content”
The issue was caused by copy/paste of text from the users email. This text was copied from the users email and seems to contain attributes that cognos can’t handle.
Paste the users text to notepad and copied from notepad to the body of the email. Then switched the setting to “Change to HTML format”.
The requested styling could be provided now such as bold and underlined.
