MailStream Plus error - *** ERROR *** Auto Flats & NonMach Per PCS not allowed in the same mailing

ML TYP 2 F
P ATTR 012 5 X         000.5 000.5 00013 00011       00035       Y     Y
P ATTR       29210     10.25 10.25 00013 00011       00031       Y
P ATTR       29635     02.99 03.99 00013 00011       00032       Y
P ATTR       29201     01.55 02.55 00013 00011        0.00       Y
 
I have the error messages below. But I can't figure out which P ATTR needs to be modified in order to get the job to run
 
***  WARNING  ***  Out of DMM limit for Auto Flats PATTR set to F;PID=X
***   ERROR   ***  Auto Flats & NonMach Per PCS not allowed in the same mailing
 
The first warning says this :
***  WARNING  ***  Out of DMM limit for Auto Flats PATTR set to F;PID=X
 
So your first P ATTR has the X which is what the – PID=X is referring to.
P ATTR 012 5 X         000.5 000.5 00013 00011       00035       Y     Y
 
This piece size is too small for the Automation Compatible limits.
Under DMM 201.6.0 –
6.2 Additional Criteria for Automation Flats
6.2.1 AnchorAnchorAnchorShape and Size
Each flat-size piece must be rectangular, except that flat-size mailpieces may have finished corners that do not exceed a radius of 0.125 inch (1/8 inch). See Exhibit 1.1.1. The following minimum and maximum dimensions apply to First-Class Mail, Standard Mail, Periodicals (except under 207.26.0), and Bound Printed Matter pieces:
a. Minimum height is 5 inches. Maximum height is 12 inches.
b. Minimum length is 6 inches. Maximum length is 15 inches, except for polywrapped flats as allowed in 4.1.
c. For bound or folded pieces, the edge perpendicular to the bound or folded edge may not exceed 12 inches.
d. Minimum thickness is 0.009 inch. Maximum thickness is 0.75 inch.
 
Your piece is under the minimum thickness This piece has 000.5 for 100 which translates to .005 for 1 piece and that is under the Minimum thickness of 0.009 inch
Once this is changed it to – 001.5 for the thickness of 100 pieces, the job ran fine.
 
P ATTR 012 5 X         000.5 001.5 00013 00011       00035       Y     Y
 
Hopefully the value of 000.5 is just a mistyped value.  If not, then this P ATTR will have to run in a separate mailing.
-------------------------------------------------------
Note: The actual error that abended the job-
***   ERROR   ***  Auto Flats & NonMach Per PCS not allowed in the same mailing
Means that MailStream Plus cannot do a Periodicals ('Per') mailing that has Auto  Flats (P ATTR position 66=Y), and NonMach (P ATTR position 66=F), pieces in the same mailing.
