Summary:   This alert indicates that the XSL used to transform XML data in the body of an e-mail message has failed.

Cause:   Possible causes may include:

  • The XSL data might be corrupted.

  • If the XSL data was customized, there could be an error in the custom code.

  • Other custom updates to the server farm might create a situation that is not compatible with the XSL data.

Possible resolutions include the following:

  • Make sure the performance point service application is created. Re-try Microsoft Project Web App (PWA) creation.

  • Performing the following steps:

    1. Check the Windows NT Event log to determine the notification e-mail type UID.

    2. Using the notification e-mail type UID from the Windows NT Event log, query the MSP_Notification_XSLS table in the Published database to return the notification e-mail XSL.

    3. Verify that the XSL does not contain any errors.

    4. If necessary, restore the XSL for the specified notification e-mail type UID from backup.
