Introduction

This article describes a hotfix for Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0 or Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010 that resolves the following issue.

Issue

Consider the following scenario:
  • You use Microsoft Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)-based SAP adapter that is included in Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0 or in Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010 to receive messages from an SAP system.

    Note The WCF-based SAP adapter is also known as Microsoft BizTalk Adapter for mySAP Business Suite 3.0.
  • The WCF-based SAP adapter receives a NUMC value that contains leading zeros and that is from an SAP system.
In this scenario, the WCF-based SAP adapter trims the leading zeros. However, Microsoft BizTalk Adapter 2.0 or Microsoft BizTalk Adapter 2010 for mySAP Business Suite (also known as legacy SAP adapter) does not trim leading zeros.

For example, the WCF-based SAP adapter trims the 00001200 value to 1200. However, BizTalk Adapter 2.0 or BizTalk Adapter 2010 for mySAP Business Suite does not trim the leading zeros of the 00001200 value.

MORE INFORMATION

To resolve this issue, install the following cumulative update, and then set the TrimLeadingZerozForNumc binding property to False.

Note The following cumulative update adds the TrimLeadingZerozForNumc binding property to the DataTypesBehavior property of the WCF-based SAP adapter:
  • If the TrimLeadingZerozForNumc property is set to True, the WCF-based SAP adapter trims the leading zeros of NUMC values.
  • If the TrimLeadingZerozForNumc property is set to False, the WCF-based SAP adapter does not trim the leading zeros of NUMC values.
Notes
  • The default value of the TrimLeadingZerozForNumc property is True.
  • The safetyping property does not affect the TrimLeadingZerozForNumc property.
