Data loader format for entity section

What are the possible formats for the entity section?
Documentation example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>


How can I refer to external files, as in the following example?


I suppose a doctype is not allowed…
<!DOCTYPE am_object SYSTEM "" [

Many thanks for any help

there is a general rule for the format of the Data Loader input - it has to be well-formed XML.
Following this: if you use ENTITY declarations and/or DOCTYPE declarations, they have to appear before the starting ino:request and are common for all documents.
Per document declarations will be supported in the near future.

All the best,

Taking a clue from this posting i tried to upload an ino:object with entity decl as below
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
