Thanks OT. I did have an ampersand in the folder that contains the pictures for one of the projects. I changed that and it made no difference. All of my pictures have their original titles so there are no ampersands in the titles. I checked the help section of iPhoto Library Manager and printed out their suggestions re AlbumData.xml files which suggests opening the AlbumData.xml with a word processing program and running a search to the line that is noted in the iPhoto Library Manager error message. I went to one of the offending libraries, opened the package contents and I was about to open the AlbumData.xml files using Text Wrangler when I noted in the "Kind" column that this is a Final Cut Express XML File. I checked my other libraries and they all show this. It makes no sense to me and I wonder if this could be part of the problem? I have an iMac as well as the Mac Pro and even though I never use the iMac for graphic projects any more I still have iPhoto loaded on it. When I checked the AlbumData.xml files on the iMac iPhoto they were listed as Word files.

Mean absolutely nothing. All that's telling you is that FCE is set as the default app to open xml files on one machine and Word is on the other. It doesn't matter. Open with TW or your preferred Text Editor.
Many thanks for responding and clarifying.
I was able to resolve the problem using the suggestion from iPhoto Library Manager. I used TextWrangler to open the AlbumData.xml files and did a search for the ampersands. In both cases the ampersands were in song titles that I had used to construct slideshows.
