java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "DESCRIPTION="

I'm getting a Warning in the concurrent manager when I submit a programme that has an attached xml template. The warning is stating: -

------------- 1) PUBLISH -------------
Beginning post-processing of request 2667735 on node BAMBI at 02-SEP-2011 17:32:56.
Post-processing of request 2667735 failed at 02-SEP-2011 17:32:57 with the error message:
One or more post-processing actions failed. Consult the OPP service log for details.

------------- 2) PRINT   -------------
Not printing the output of this request because post-processing failed.

When I consult the OPP log in Sysadmin, I can see a not very helpful message: -

[9/2/11 5:32:57 PM] [36822:RT2667735] Completed post-processing actions for request 2667735.

Now, this isn't programme specific as it's affecting all our BI Publisher reports. Also the specific report I am working on has the option to email. I'm finding that the emails still work and when I open the attachment, they are displaying in PDF format correctly - even though the concurrent manager completes with the above warning. The above warning doesn't let me view the output in PDF from Oracle Financials.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
