1220458 - Data is duplicated in report when connecting using native XML database driver

Symptom

Optional elements of data inside an XML file, which are validated against an XSD file, do not reset their value back to NULL after being read. Therefore, records which follow will still contain the same value in the report.

Cause

The issue has been identified and tracked under ID ADAPT00581435.

Resolution

Hot Fixes or Service Packs address this issue as indicated below. With the update(s), this has been fixed and if the optional element is missing, the value is reset to NULL.

Known limitations: This patch introduces a new behavior depending on the XML structure,so that now there will be fewer records in the report (not missing data). This happens only if the optional element has a depth of three levels or more and the total structure depth is five or higher. Here an example (optional element is c,d,e):

<a>

<b>

</b>

<b>

<c>

<d>

<e>String1</e>

</d>

<d>

<e>String2</e>

</d>

</c>

</b>

<b>

</b>

</a>

Unless indicated otherwise, Critical Hot Fix updates from the FTP site have only been tested with English versions of our products.
