Why can i promote property fields in BizTalk 2006 but distinguished fields are disabled? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a very strange behaviour in the Show Promotions Dialog in BizTalk 2006. It allows me to promote property fields, but distinguished fields are disabled.

    Any thoughts?

  • I think you are trying to promote a child record, Since a promoted field can only occur once per message. child records cannot be promoted
    check once, if that field is a child record, delete it and then add it to the schema as a child field element.

    then you can promote as distinguished field.

  • How is it disabled? Is it the tab "Distinguished Fields" that is inaccessible, or is it the "Add >>" button that is disabled? The "Add >>" button will only be enabled if you are positioned on a single-occurrent Element or Attribute (actually it will also be enabled on a multi-occurent, but that will produce a warning if actually added)
