LibreOffice or Gramps issue

Kurt Caulley
I don't know if this is a LibreOffice or Gramps issue so I'll start here.
Each time I run any text report in Gramps I get this error when LibreOffice
starts.

Read Error.
Format error discovered in the file in sub-document meta.xml at
19,18(row,col).

I'm using Gramps 5.0.2 on Linux Mint 19.1 Mate, LibreOffice Version:
6.0.7.3.

How can I find and correct this issue.

Thanks
Kurt

meta.xml is kind of catalog for the various sub-files in the document.
If it is damaged, sure LO Writer has a hard time accessing the document.
We can't tell the cause without having a look at the file.

Ask a question on ask.libreoffice.org (needs registration) and attach
your file to the question, provided it is not too big (up to 2MB should
be OK).

Remember to use a public genealogy - not your own - to make the report.

I assume you are exporting an .odt file from Gramps.  And then opening in LibreOffice.  To help diagnose, you can open the .odt file with 7-zip or some similar utility, and extract the meta.xml file.  If you send it directly to me, I can see if anything obvious shows up.

When I tested this on my own machine, I found my name in that part of the meta.xml file, the name as located in Gramps "Tools/family Tree Processing/Edit database owner".

It is possible that if your name in that location has characters that are not XML friendly, then that could cause an issue.

That was the issue. I had "&" between two names. Removed it and the error is
gone.

It's probably a bug that ampersands aren't escaped.
