TUFLOW Message
ERROR 2514 - Could not find end of points data flag "</Pnts>" in XML file.

Alternate Message
ERROR 2514 - Could not find end of surface definition flag "</Definition>" in XML file.
ERROR 2514 - Could not find end of triangle data flag "</Faces>" in XML file.
Note Prior to the 2016 version of TUFLOW, this message was ERROR 2314 instead of 2514. This was renumbered due to a clash.

Message Type

The .xml format TIN file contains data within the xml tags <Pnts></Pnts>, <Definition></Definition> and <Faces></Faces>. The file contains the beginning of a data block (<Pnts>,<Definition> or <Faces>) without the corresponding end tag (</Pnts>,</Definition> or </Faces>).

Check that the .xml file is a valid file and that it has been completely written before running TUFLOW. Some software will write the .xml file on a single line rather than with line breaks at the end of each tag. This can cause the file to not be recognised in TUFLOW and the following should also be reported in the error message:
Less than 5 lines in .xml file. Make sure file is in ""Pretty Print Format"" (has line breaks).
The file will need to be saved with line endings, the software used to create the file may have an option to convert the file. The format with line endings may be referred to as Pretty Print format. The free Microsoft editor XML Notepad can be used to save the file into the correct format.
