Msg 2333, Level 16, State 1, Line 4
%sInvalid source character 0x%02x
This error message appears when in an XQuery an invalid source character was found.
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.
Errors of the Severity level 16 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be run this way. All characters must be valid.
This error message was introduced with SQL Server 2005.
DECLARE @xml xml;
SET @xml = ”;
@xml.query(‘for $a in(1, 2, 3), $b in (¨2, 3)
$a lt $b
return sum($a + $b)’) as XML;
In the above example we try to use the ¨ character. This is an invalid source character and the error is raised.
