On Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) version, when attempting to execute pin_crypt_upgrade, it is returning a "PIN_ERR_MISSING_ARG" error.  This occurs when encrypting fields (BANK_NO and DEBIT_NUM) in PAYINFO_DD_T table.

 CM output flist: opcode PCM_OP_WRITE_FLDS
# number of field entries allocated 20, used 2
0 PIN_FLD_POID POID [0] /payinfo/dd 1275252855 5
  <location=PIN_ERRLOC_DM:4 class=UNKNOWN:0 errno=PIN_ERR_MISSING_ARG:13>
  <facility=0 msg_id=0 version=0>

The pin_crypt_upgrade did encrypt data for all records but some are missed.

This can be reproduce with the following steps:

1. Prepare the Portal Object Definition Language (PODL) file for PAYINFO_DD_T table.
2. Enable the encryption for fields (BANK_NO and DEBIT_NUM) in the PODL file and loading the same.
3. Run the pin_crypt_upgrade from the $PIN_HOME/apps/pin_crypt directory.
