DX2 is being skipped

In some of the 837 data, the X12 parser seems to skip the first Diagnosis code (code identifier = "BF"). The generated XML is missing the <HI01>/<HI0101> element/node. It directly starts with <HI02>/<HI0201>, as seen below.
<!--Health Care Code Information-->
        <!--Health Care Code Information-->

Corresponding line in 837 Claim:
I omitted showing Principal Diagnosis code in the XML example above.

As such, we end up with no value for DX2 (maps to <HI01> in our system), but values for DX3(maps to <HI02>) and DX4 maps to <HI03>, and so on.

Do you think this is an issue in the supplied data?

Thanks, in advance, for all your help.

Kind Regards,
