Deployment Error


Greetings, i'm getting the following error when deploying the reports with RSBuild. They do deploy correctly via the VS.NET IDE.
The XML looks like: (i ommited some of the real values)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <Global Name="ReportServer">localhost</Global>
    <Global Name="ReportServerPath">ReportServer</Global>
    <ReportServer Name="RS1" Protocol="http" Host="${ReportServer}" Path="${ReportServerPath}" Timeout="30" />
    <DataSource Name="asa" Publish="true" Overwrite="true" TargetFolder="TMA_Reports" ReportServer="RS1">
        <ConnectionString>data source=localhost;initial catalog=abc</ConnectionString>
    <ReportGroup Name="ReportsGroup" DataSourceName="asa" TargetFolder="TMA_Reports" ReportServer="RS1" CacheTime="10080">
        <Report Name="AgencyInvoice">
<DBExecutions />

The error is:

"There is an invalid character in the given encoding."

I had this problem. The report would deploy manually OK, but no with RSBuild.
The reason was that the RDL file is loaded by RSBuild into the XML Dom so it can have its datasource modified.
I had some custom code in the report that used a character delimited string. I decided to use some obscure characters so that there was no chance any real data would contain them ( I chose a tilde character) and this was what caused the problem. Check the values you've ommitted
