ArchivesSpace requires each <c> element (i.e. c01, c02, etc.) to contain either a <unittitle> or <unitdate> (or both if you'd like).  In other words, the following example is valid .xml but it will not import into ArchivesSpace because there isn't a title or date associated with the <c01> for Box 1

Miloche -
thanks for the response but <c01> looks complete:

             <c01 id="ref10" level="file">
                     <unittitle>Laurence A. Grossman Memoirs,</unittitle>
                     <container id="cid4824318" type="Box" label="Mixed 
                     <container parent="cid4824318" 
                     <unitdate>1945 January 13-July 14, 1945 January 
13-July 14, 2003</unitdate>

This collection is a one item collection, so I don't have anything else 
in <dsc>. Maybe I'm missing something somewhere else - I'll keep looking.
