FIX: The EDI X-12 856 Ship Confirmation (X12_4010_856) schema has only two HL segments in BizTalk Server 2004

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
In Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, you notice that the Electronic DataInterchange (EDI) X-12 856 Ship Confirmation (X12_4010_856) schema only has the following two Hierarchical Level (HL) segments:
  • HLLoopShipment
  • HLLoopOrder
When you are working with EDI documents, you may frequently need more HL segments in this schema to support your EDI mapping.
