FIX: Error message when you submit an MT564 message that contains both the OPST qualifier and the CLAS qualifier in Microsoft BizTalk Accelerator for SWIFT Message Pack 2008: "Message failed parsing; cannot be serialized"

Symptoms

When you submit an MT564 message that contains both the Option Style (OPST) qualifier and the Instrument Classification Type (CLAS) qualifier in Microsoft BizTalk Accelerator for SWIFT Message Pack 2008, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
Message failed parsing; cannot be serialized.
If you filter out the failed message or you review the error in the BizTalk Administration console, you see an error message that resembles the following:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?><SWIFT_ERROR MessageType="564"><ParseError ExceptionType="" LineNumber="0" LinePosition="0" MultipleEmptyLines="False" SchemaName="http://schemas.microsoft.com/BizTalk/Solutions/FinancialServices/SWIFT/Category5/MT564#SWIFT_CATEGORY5_MT564_Interchange"><Message>Unexpected data found while looking for: ':16S:FIA' ':36B::' ':92K::' ':92A::' ':11A::' ':98A::' The current definition being parsed is SequenceB1.

More Information

Microsoft BizTalk Accelerator for SWIFT Message Pack 2008 is based on the SWIFT Standards Release Guide (SRG) 2008. After the release of Message Pack 2008, SWIFT released an update about Corporate Action Notification (MT564) messages. The hotfix that this article describes allows for MT564 messages to be processed successfully and according to the update that SWIFT SRG issued.

After you apply the hotfix that this article describes, MT564 messages allow for repetitive fields. This allows for the new OPST qualifier that is added to field 12a to be processed correctly. The addition of the OPST qualifier to the already available CLAS qualifier makes field 12a a repetitive field. The CLAS qualifier and the OPST qualifier are not mutually exclusive.
