Description

We have reported this issue to BS of MS and were told that they did not agree that this is non-compliant. Please verify if this is compliant or non-compliant.
PLB*646001540E*20051231*FB:OC*21.72*FB:NC*0~ <--- error

Response

This issue is explicitly addressed in guide 004010X091. Section 2.1.4, page 16 states in the bottom paragraph "The PLB segment provides for reporting increases or reductions to the amount remitted in conjunction with reference numbers for further identification." A zero amount in PLB06 does not increase or reduce the amount remitted. Therefore, a zero value in PLB06 is not compliant with this guide.
