Hi Lora,

I can’t resize your screenshots so I cant see the component after the last c02 that exported.  Did you look at the next one to see if there is anything unusal or different from the one before? We’ve “choked” on any kind of wrapped tag in components, special characters, and bulk dates.  So you may want to check the date encoding as well.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Another EAD export issue

Oh help collective wisdom!  I'm not even sure where to begin with explaining this issue since I can't wrap my head around what's at fault, so bear with me.

I am trying to export (with number c's if it matters) a large manuscript collection migrated from AT.  We have exported numerous other AT-migrated collections without issue, but this one is choking early on without an obvious reason.  I see no special characters, no faulty encoding, etc.  Yes, we do have the known issue of having <title>s export as <title> but we've gotten past that issue in other finding aids by doing a find & replace in Oxygen and re-entering < and >.  (The joys of being a small institution where you can get away with such manual manipulation!)

I've attached screenshots of the collection as it appears in AT and the XML once opened in Oxygen.  The collection contains over 1,000 instances yet the resulting XML file ends at folder 26 (the screen shot is the very end of the document) and is just 14kb.  Something is clearly up.

Thanks in advance and let me know how else I can help.
