I've had a few BizTalk maps that have caused me to stop and think as to how to get over the problem of suppressing nodes when the child node has no data.  The issue arises if you use Data flattening shape to block the creation of an element. The child node is suppressed but the parent node is still created.  I just found out how to block the parent node from being created so I’m posting it here so I can find it again the next time I need it.

Suppressing parent nodes

By connecting the parent nodes to the functoid that provides the condition to the data flattening functoids the parent nodes will be suppressed.

Thanks to Saravana Kumar for posting the answer on his blog.
