    I am trying to generate a valid XML file for ITR3 for submission to the income tax department
    When I save the XML file, I get the following error
    Microsoft Visual Basic
    Runtime Error (- 2146XXXXX(XXXXXX))
    Automation Error

    Does anyone know how to fix the problem, so that a valid xml file is generated. Should the settings in Microsoft Excel be changed. The excel file is the same in both cases .
