    Fines generated for patron statuses that are configured in tab16 to not be fined

    Fines are being generated for patron statuses (51 and 53) that have been configured in the abc50 tab16 to *not* be fined.

    This has been happening intermittently since 27th March 2008.

    Since the abc50 tab16, column 14 (Fine Method) has "0" when the Patron status is "51", it would seem that no fines would be charged. But I see that column 11 (Fine Multiple) *does* have amounts....

    I suggest, in order to eliminate this as a source of the problem, that you change column 11 to "00000" for each Patron status "51" and "53" line.

    [This corrected the problem.]
