  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    *  Users who are creating tests or stubs using the FIX         *
    * transport and protocol and who have created their own FIX    *
    * dictionaries.                                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Tester outputs fields in a custom FIX dictionary in          *
    * numerical order rather than dictionary order.  This means    *
    * that the published FIX message may have the fields in the    *
    * wrong order, causing the FIX server to reject the message.   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Users who are experiencing this problem must upgrade to a    *
    * version of Tester that the problem has been resolved in.     *
