Mapping Problem. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am completely new to Biztalk and EDI. I learned some tutorials about Biztalk and then tried batching concept, every thing went good. I got the requirement to produce EDI 850 message with following pattern.






    i.e., In N1 loop i want to show N1 twice but PER field for only one time. I tried with table looping factoid along with scripting factoid. My scripting factoid return nothing if it is second iteration for PER field. But i am getting output like this.

    N1|BT|Metropolitan ID|92|C019~

    PER|BD|Craig Hunter~

    N1|ST|Metropolitan ID|91|110602~



    The Second PER field appears without any values.

    Here is the coding which i have used in my scripting factoid.

    public string MyConcat(int param1)



    return "BD";


    return "";


    Any Help or ideas??

  • You need a looping functoid along with a condition functoid. That will solve the problem.

    1. Take out the scripting funcotoid
    2. Link the source node to a looping functoid. Link the same functoid to the destinaiton root node. In your case to the root of PER. NOT PER01 or PER02, the root of PER 
    3. Place an = functoid and connect it to the same source node and the same destination node.
    4. Thats it.

    Try it and let me know how it goes.
