When you use the Microsoft BizTalk Adapter for mySAP Business Suite to receive an intermediate document (IDOC) from an SAP system, BizTalk Adapter for mySAP Business Suite cannot run successfully when BizTalk Adapter for mySAP Business Suite parses the IDOC stream. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
Index out of bounds
At the same time, the SAP system receives the following error message:
Target Invocation failure
This problem occurs if an IDOC instance contains a text field that allows for multiple lines.
This problem occurs because the SAP adapter parses the stream line by line. The SAP adapter returns an invalid IDOC if a record contains multiple lines.
