Urgent :: Error in Bulk API (InvalidBatch : Failed to parse XML. Found invalid XML. entity reference names can not start with character ' ' )

Hello,

I am using Bulk Api with C#.net.
every time I am getting below error if xml file has more than 50 records.

<stateMessage>InvalidBatch : Failed to parse XML. Found invalid XML. entity reference names can not start with character ' ' (position: START_TAG seen ...&lt;SMS_Zip_Code_Map_EUC__c>J &amp; ... @1:72405)</stateMessage>

Below 50 records It works fine.

Anyone has some idea?

Thanks in Advance,

Can you post the complete xml file for records above 50. How is the XML file generated?

Thanks Satish,

I got solution for this error.
Actually there was some unsupported characters (for xml).
&, < and >
I have replaced these charecters with belos
"&" with "&amp;"
"<" with "&gt;"
and
">" with "&lt;"

and it works fine.

Thanks for your reply.

Thanks,
Dhaval
