FIX: "39: Data element too long" error when you use an EDI pipeline to process an EDIFACT message in BizTalk Server 2009
Article ID: 2447322 - View products that this article applies to.
Consider the following scenario:
39: Data element too long
This error indicates the message cannot be processed because a data element is longer than the maximum length specified by the schema.
This issue occurs because BizTalk Server incorrectly counts release characters as regular characters. Therefore, the following EDIFACT standard is not implemented:
"When used, the release character is not counted in the length of the data element value."Note For more information about EDIFACT standards, visit the following United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) website:
