SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • In Microsoft BizTalk Accelerator for HL 7 (BTAHL7) Configuration Explorer, you enable the Allow trailing delimiters (separators) option under the Validation tab of your trading party.
  • In a create-batch scenario, one of the separate input messages contains trailing delimiters.

    Note The Create-batch scenario is a scenario when BTAHL7 combines separate input messages into an output batch. For more information, refer to the "More information" section.
In this scenario, the Allow trailing delimiters (separators) option is not applied. Therefore, the outgoing batch creation fails. Additionally, an error message is logged in application event log that resembles the following:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: BizTalk Accelerator for HL7
Event ID: 4133
Description: Error happened in body during serialization Error # 1
Segment Id: PID_PatientIdentification
Sequence Number: <Sequence Number>
Field Number: <Field number>
Error Number: 207
Error Description: Application internal error
Encoding System: HL7nnnn
Alternate Error Number: Z100
Alternate Error Description: Trailing delimiter found
Alternate Encoding System: HL7-BTA

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of an error in the BizTalk Accelerator for HL7 2.0 version.
