Problems - import/export xml users

I´m trying to import a xml file in a journal in 2.4.3 version. This xml was exported by a journal in 2.4.2 version, hosted in another server. But in import process i received this message: DB Error: Column 'last_name' cannot be null

All last_name have data.... Any idea?

Hi ewoelke,

The only cause I can think of is a missing or empty author last name tag; I'd suggest looking again.
