Replace with breakline



  • Greetings,
    I’ve got a lot of xml files that look like this:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <CGXML>
    <Land>
    <MEASUREDAREA>10460</MEASUREDAREA>
    <PARCELLEGALAREA>2500</PARCELLEGALAREA>
    <ISNEW>false</ISNEW>
    <Land>
    <CGXML>
    But there are some that dont have the <PARCELLEGALAREA> tag. So I want to add a closed <PARCELLEGALAREA /> tag where is needed.
    Ive used the Extended search mode, on “Find what” I went with </MEASUREDAREA>\r\n <ISNEW> / on “Replace with” </MEASUREDAREA>\r\n <PARCELLEGALAREA />\r\n <ISNEW>
    This does the job , if I oppen the modifyed files with notepadd it looks ok, but if I try to oppen with any of my xml programs
    I get Input String was not in a correct format. or Error System.FormatException / Input String was not in a correct format.



  • Found out that if I do the replace on a txt file and then change the extension to xml , then it works like a charm.



  • or not… it just didnt replace the file…



  • Is it really like written above with land and CGXML have no closing tag?
