Resolve MailStream Plus error: MSST00A I 0008: PFRMPKG 02 (Sequence Error)Prv: 402 402 40

Issue

What does this error mean in my MailStream Plus job?

MSST00A I 0008: PFRMPKG 02 (Sequence Error)Prv: 402 402 40

MSST00A E 0008: PFRMPKG 02 Cur: 402 402 40

MSDR01 I MSDR01 Ended abnormally. Processing terminated.

(The number values for Previous (Prv) and Current (Cur) will vary depending on the FRM BL parameter and input file being ran.)

Cause

This is a firm bundle sorting error.

Either the locations in the FRM BL parameter are the incorrect locations.

Or

The file was not sorted in the correct sequence prior to the MailStream Plus step.

Resolution

UPDATED: August 1, 2018
Please review the FRM BL parameter in the MSP Guide for the version being used.  Here is some of the information given:

You must sort your input file prior to using MailStream Plus in ascending order by Batch Code, Entry Point, ZIP Code, Carrier Route, and all fields specified on the FRM BL parameter. If you are performing a Carrier Route Line-of-Travel or Carrier Route Walk Sequence in addition to Firm Bundling, you need to use an X in the Out of Sequence Processing Code field on the ZIP IN parameter.

Please note:
  • If the ZIP IN parameter contains the CRRT location, MailStream Plus uses that CRRT information for firm bundle sequence checking.
  • If the CRRT is invalid in a name/address input record, MailStream Plus considers the input record to be blank. This can result in a firm bundle sequence error.
  • Verify the definition in the Blank Walk-Sequence/Line-of-Travel Disposition field of the ZIP IN parameter. An incorrect setting can result in MailStream Plus interpreting the CRRT information as blank. This can result in a firm bundle sequence error.
