BizTalk Map XSLT Error: The ‘=’ character cannot be included in a name
March 14, 2016
MyMap.btm: error btm1023: Exception Caught: The ‘=’ character, hexadecimal value 0x3D, cannot be included in a name. Line 4, position 23.
This was a simple typo. I typed in “value-of-select=” instead of “value-of select=” (I erroneously included an extra dash between the “of” and the “select”). The parser saw the entire element name as “value-of-select=”, so of course, you cannot have an equal sign in an element name.
