Thanks for the reassurance. Unfortunately the transaction is directed at
an 800lb gorilla and, from experience, a polite WTH query normally
elicits an equally polite "it's OK for everyone else so fix your end,
buddy" response. I can fix it easily enough but I hate sending
syntactically incorrect EDI.
