How to process the delimited flat file with tag identifiers not at the beginning-Grouping-Debatching

Today, I have posted my first TechNet Wiki article today. This article is based on one of the questions in MSDN BizTalk forum.

Questioner wanted to

  • Create a flat file schema for delimited file with tag identifiers for header and detail which is not at the beginning of the record.
  • Group the header and detail based on a date field.
  • Debatch the grouped record by date.

Flat File Structure

This is a delimited flat file with tag identifier for header and detail. As you can see, the tag identifiers are not at the beginning of the data for a delimited record. And questioner wants to debatch the file by date. So its about how to process the delimited flat file with tag identifiers not at the beginning-Grouping-Debatching.

I though I would detail the solution for this requirement by posting an article in TechNet-Wiki and Code-Gallery contain the complete source code for this solution.
