APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • MAH/CMF
    RTC 368383
    commpost starting to run through the dlls: EncFile,
    EncDetector, Encodings - then it stops and never makes it to
    Converter.
    Config > Splitter > values for envelope delimiters, repeating
    and such are blank. null or invalid
    

Local fix

  • Alter the envelope values to not be blank. 0 turns off the
    feature.
    

Problem summary

  • 5.3.1 commpost crashing when EDI splitter entries had NULL
    values in the RepeatingElementDelimPosn database column.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added check to EDI splitter to validate the
    RepeatingElementDelimPosn value retrieved from the database.  If
    the variable is less than 0 or greater than 200, it gets reset
    to 0 and a new warning audit is written to the Audit Log
    (1-6-1683: "Splitter - the RepeatingElementDelimPosn value for
    the [start tag] splitter entry is invalid. The Splitter value
    Rep Elem has been temporarily set to 0 (not used) for this
    transaction. Please update the Splitter configuration to prevent
    further warnings.")
