HELP: Serialization error: "' ', hexadec imal value 0x06, is an invalid character

Post by Petar Koz » Fri, 24 Jan 2003 16:43:19

Hi there,

I am developing an application using remoting and serialization in
VB.NET. Remoting is handled on ther server by my app's Web service.
When a client (WIndows GUI app) attempts to connect to the server to
load an object the following error occurs:

"' ', hexadecimal value 0x06, is an invalid character

Server stack trace:
   at System.Xml.XmlScanner.ScanContent()
   at System.Xml.XmlTextReader.ParseBeginTagExpandCharEntities()
   at System.Xml.XmlTextReader.Read()
   at System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Soap.SoapParser.ParseXml()
   at System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Soap.SoapParser.Run()
   handler, ISerParser serParser)   at
   serializationStream, HeaderHandler handler)   at
   inputStream, IMessage requestMsg, Header[] h, Boolean
bStrictBinding)   at
   mcm, ITransportHeaders headers, Stream stream)   at

If I use custom serialization using the ISerializable interface I do
not get this error.

Anyone know what could be the cause?



1. Need help with LINQ to SQL error "Invalid Object Name '+'"


I just wrote my first LINQ to SQL C# code and encounter an error when
performing an ADD and SELECT call.  I written a sliver to WCF to SQL
Server code. I created the DataClasses.dbml code with the designer
instead of SQL Metal. In the WCF cocde,  The ADD method

DataClassesDataContext db = new DataClassesDataContext();

Table<Log> LogTable = db.GetTable<Log>();



On the SubmitChanges method, an SqlException is thrown stating Invalid
Object '+'.

Here is my connection string:

connectionstring]"Data source=;Initial
Catalog=MyLogDB;User ID=john123;Password=MyPassword

I read on other forum, that their connection string has an error, but
I can see anything is wrong.

Any help is appreciated in getting my LINQ to SQL to work.
