Symptoms

TAX960ST does not populate Busi_Term_Ind in RE record for NC - file rejected from NC and the file is being rejected from NC.

The first part of the RE line of our file is below, and the terminating business indicator should be in column 26:
RE2016 582548193 SIERRA...

We found that there is a special step in tax960st.sqr that clears out the $A.Busi_term_ind value for NC before writing the RE record. Should this step still be occurring?
  when = 'NC'
  do RE-GroupClear
  break
  begin-Procedure RE-GroupClear
  move ' ' to $A.Busi_Term_Ind
  ....
