Error description

  • When using an iterator containing a message that uses "Validate
    Using Tag", "Process Tag"
    or "Validate Using Message From File" actions, the value of the
    tag in the first iteration is used for each subsequent
    iteration.  This problem does not occur if the message contains
    a field expander or repeating elements.
    
    The Message Difference Window displays correctly for the
    expected and actual data for the first iteration; it reports
    that the tag "did not contain a tagged message" for subsequent
    iterations.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If you have a message that uses "Validate Using Tag",        *
    * "Process Tag" or "Validate Using Message From File" actions  *
    * within an iterator, the value of the tag in the first        *
    * iteration is used for each subsequent iteration.             *
    *                                                              *
    * If you open the Message Difference Window you'll see that it *
    * displays correctly for the the first iteration but for       *
    * subsequent iterations it reports that the tag "did not       *
    * contain a tagged message".                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
