I have been successful running spin.exe to import documents into a site.
But I can't seem to run it against a sub site within a site. Does

This is a known problem in the released version of spin.exe.

If you call MS PSS, they have a private hot fix they can provide you.

They may ask you for a support account/credit card but you won't be charged
because this is a bug in spin.exe.

I was wondering if you can help me with another problem. I've been very
successful running  the SPIN.EXE. But for some reason, I encountered this error
message on one of the xml files  that I just created  using SPOUT.EXE:

XML cannot be parsed. Check the error log for more information.

I checked the error log and the only thing in the log was that it modified one
file name because it had an "&" in the name.
