Early termination of Flat File records

Did you know that setting the allow_early_termination=”yes” attribute on a flat file record only allows early termination of the last field in the record? So, in case of:

PositionalRecord
-Field1
-Field2
-Field3
-Field4
-Field5
-PositionalRecord1
–Field6
–Field7
–Field8

Only Field8 can early terminate.

Bummer!

I heard (from a trusted source in Redmond) that this issue will be addressed in BizTalk Server 2006.
