Assume that you are using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) in Microsoft BizTalk Server. When you process the EDI message from the Extensible Markup Language (XML) to a flat file in the EDI send pipeline, you may notice that the process fails if the message contains an empty node in a sub-loop. For example, the node is denoted as <ns0:DTM_SubLoop/> instead of <ns0:DTM_SubLoop></ns0:DTM_SubLoop>.
Additionally, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:
