XST - "ERROR:HDLParsers:163 - file_name Line xx. Unexpected symbol read: word."

Description

General Description:

The following error is reported:

"ERROR: HDLParsers:163 - file_name Line xx. Unexpected symbol read: word."

Solution

The above error message occurs because of a symbol that is not associated with any data type or label. (This is probably a symbol that was misplaced either from the previous line or from the line that follows.)

You can solve this problem by examining the line number in the error message and double-checking the syntax of that line.

This could also be caused by a syntax error that occurs when the component declaration and the attribute declarations are located after the "begin" statement in VHDL. To resolve the issue, move them so that they are before the "begin" statement.
