FIX: Error message "Fatal error encountered in EDI Disassembler" is logged in the Application event log when you receive an HIPAA 837 Professional document that contains more than 50 occurrences of Loop 2400 in BizTalk Server 2006 R2
You use Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2 to receive Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) messages.
You receive an 837 Professional document.
The 837 Professional document contains more than 50 occurrences of the Loop 2400 service line.
In this scenario, the document is suspended. Additionally, you find event 4097, event 5719 and event 5753 logged in the Application event logs as follows:
Event ID: 4097: Fatal error encountered in EDI Disassembler, error information is Unexpected end of file has occurred. The following elements are not closed: ns0:TS837Q1_2300_Loop, ns0:TS837Q1_2000B_Loop, ns0:TS837Q1_2000A_Loop, ns0:X12_00401_837_P. Line 1, position <number>.
Event ID: 5719 There was a failure executing the receive pipeline: "Microsoft.BizTalk.Edi.DefaultPipelines.EdiReceive, Microsoft.BizTalk.Edi.EdiPipelines, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" Source: "EDI disassembler" Receive Port: "<receive port>" URI: "<URI>" Reason: Unexpected end of file has occurred. The following elements are not closed: ns0:TS837Q1_2300_Loop, ns0:TS837Q1_2000B_Loop, ns0:TS837Q1_2000A_Loop, ns0:X12_00401_837_P. Line 1, position 288006.
Event ID: 5753 A message received by adapter "<Adapter>" on receive location "<Receive Location>" with URI "<URI>" is suspended.
Loop 2400 should not occur more than the maximum limit of 50 times in an 837Professional document. Therefore, the expected result is that the 837Professional document is suspended with a validation error.
This problem occurs because of an error in the EDI components of BizTalk Server 2006 R2.
