Error Code: MBER1919

Learn about the error code MBER1919 and how to resolve it.


While MindBridge is validating your data, the following error message appears:

MindBridge could not detect the required file {dtdFileName} and could not unzip the GDPdU file. Create a new ZIP file that includes this required file, then re-import the ZIP file.

What does this error mean?

The error occurs if an imported GDPdU zip file does not contain a DTD file.

GDPdU files are database exports. If an export has been manually manipulated or saved incorrectly, it may not contain all of the necessary files to import and unpack properly.

MindBridge requires that a DTD file be present in order to specify the format standard and validate the index.xml file (also required). In the first 2 lines, the .xml file shows which DTD file it is using:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE DataSet SYSTEM "gdpdu-01-08-2002.dtd"[]>
<Version />


Re-import the GDPdU zip file with the included DTD file.


Re-export from the original ERP, compress it, and re-import the zip file with the included DTD file.
