How to force the Segment ID (SEG - 1002) to a custom value using MailStream Plus

Product Affected:  MailStream Plus™
Operating System: All Platforms


 

In the REPORT MAILDAT parameter, if you place a B in position 40 and then 1 in pos 40 and the length of your batch code, MailStream Plus(MSP) will place a value between 0001 and the number of batches your job has.  And the batch code in position 13 - 72 (Segment Description, SEG-1101) with the word batch starting in pos 13, like this:
Batch: 123456789
 
In position 40 of the REPORT MAILDAT we have this note in the MSP Guide -
"If segmenting by batch, and there are multiple entry points, then the user
should expect multiple batch segments by entry points. It is up to the user
to handle this if selected. The batch code is placed in the .csm Container
Grouping Description field. As an alternative, we suggest that you use the
.csm record for this information."
 
So, the answer is no, there is not a way to place a custom value in the SEG-1002.
