We had the same problem as Graham with an XML request. Changing the external declaration from fmnet:/sameserver/MyFile to file:MyFile caused it to work.

In both my case and Graham's, the process is running on the server. The server sees that the external file is accessed on the server "sameserver", and doesn't realize that this is actually itself. Since FileMaker Server doesn't know how to talk to other FileMaker servers in this way, it thinks it can't open the file on the "other server."

I had the same error when attempting to create records in a TO from another file in a script run from FMS scheduler. Turned out that my file reference had the IP for the server in it. I fixed the problem by replacing it with a relative path "file:Filename.fp7"

I received this error when I tried to access data stored in external tables. When I created accounts in those external files with xml privileges, the problem was resolved.

I was getting this error using FX and I finally figured out that there was a special character in one of my fields that XML didn't like.

I've had weirdness before where a script wouldn't run in another file, and this error was returned. I've cleared it up in one case by removing the file reference and recreating it.
