PRS-TRS-0906 after copy paste text

Issue PRS-TRS-0906

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.

Got some schedules in my Cognos environment who failed with the message:

CNC-SDS-0413 There was a problem in executing the task. The user authentication failed. It may not be possible to rerun the task.

To solve this I followed the next steps:

1. Renew the credentials (see how on this article)

2. Go to System Administration

3. Click on Schedules

4. Find the schedule with the error in the list

5. Click on the small blue triangle

6. Choose modify the schedule

7. Change nothing

8. Click OK to save the schedule

After that you can check the schedule on the next upcomming event.




In Report Studio I wanted to create a schedule for a report.

The report was ready and I clicked on ‘new schema’. Then error PRS-BLK-0667 occurred, “An exception was encountered when block “renderPage” was executed”.

In the details there seems to be a problem with dom4j. On the internet there was nothing to find wich relates to this error.

The only thing that I could try was restarting the Cognos server.

After that every thing was wel and creating a schedule work fine.
