FIX: Error message when you receive an EDI message in BizTalk Server 2009: "Duplicate Control Number"

Consider the following scenario in Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009:
  • You use BizTalk Server to process Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) messages from a trading partner.
  • In the EDI Properties page of the partner party, you enable the Check for duplicate ISA13 (Interchange control number) option on the X12 Interchange Processing properties page.
  • You receive an incoming EDI message from the partner. This message contains errors. This message is then suspended in BizTalk Server.
  • The partner corrects the errors of the EDI message, and resends the corrected EDI message to you. Additionally, the ISA13 segment remains unchanged.
In this scenario, the corrected EDI message is suspended in BizTalk Server. Additionally, an event that resembles the following is logged in the Application log:
Event Type:	ErrorEvent Source:	BizTalk Server 2009 EDIEvent Category:	NoneEvent ID:	8112Description:Error encountered during parsing. The X12 interchange with id '<n>', with sender id '<sender id>', receiver id '<receiver id>' had the following errors:Error: 1 (Miscellaneous error)	25: Duplicate Control NumberError: 2 (Field level error)	SegmentID: 	Position in TS: 1	Data Element ID: 	Position in Segment: 13	Position in Field: 1	Data Value: <n>	25: Duplicate Control Number
This problem occurs because the interchange control numbers in the ISA13 segment of the suspended EDI messages are still recorded in BizTalk Server. This causes a duplicate detection check to be performed.
After you apply this hotfix and configure the Inbound batch processing option in the EDI properties of the agreement to Split Interchange as Transaction Sets - suspend Interchange on ErrororPreserve Interchange - suspend Interchange on Error, only the interchange control numbers of successfully processed EDI messages will be checked for duplicates.

Note This behavior does NOT apply to the Split Interchange as Transaction Sets - suspend Transaction Sets on Error orPreserve Interchange - suspend Transaction Sets on Error Inbound batch processing options.
