Error description

  • When processing an EDIFACT interchange through Sterling Gentran
    Server for Microsift Windows in an inbound process, the
    Compost.exe would go into an infinite loop. The data contained
    unprintable character as the terminator.
    
    It was determined though that the terminator just did not have
    to match the splitter table entry, it did not matter whether it
    was printable or not.
    The break process also never kicked off.
    
    The file was not correct, so the fix would need to make the
    product error in a more graceful fashion.

    Tradacom Interchanges segment termianators pairs compared with

    is written to the audit log, and compost continues to process
    the remaining interchanges in the input file.
