SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is running Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2 or Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009.
  • You use a Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)-based SAP adapter from Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0 to connect to an SAP system.
  • You configure one receive location to receive different kinds of intermediate documents (IDOCs) from SAP by using the WCF-SAP adapter. Additionally, you set the value of the ProgramID property in the uniform resource identifier (URI) of the SAP connection.
  • You process each kind of IDOC by using a custom pipeline that includes multiple Flat file disassembler pipeline components.
In this scenario, the IDOCs are not processed correctly. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
Unexpected data found while looking for: '<segment>'
The current definition being parsed is idocData. The stream offset where the error occurred is <offset number>. The line number where the error occurred is <line number>. The column where the error occurred is <column number>.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the first Flat file disassembler pipeline component in the custom pipeline tries to disassemble all the IDOCs that are received. However, the IDOCs should be processed by different Flat file disassembler components that have different schemas.
