Resolve Why am I getting a sack over 50 lbs if I have a BG MAX to control the weight in my MailStream Plus job

Issue

The standard Flats job has 50 lbs set in position 28 – 32 for maximum container weight  –
*---+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7
BG MAX 7                   00050       11.25
 

But the first sack has over 50 lbs of mail –
CR Sack 1        71909 CRD        568  5 Bdls, 568 Pcs, 60.0944 Lbs
 
Why is this happening?
 

Cause

The reason is –
*---+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7
ALG LV       1 1  <-  This is telling MSP to use the #1 sacks
 
Your BG MAX – Is for the #7 sacks
*---+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7
BG MAX 7                   00050      
So, MailStream Plus is ignoring your BG MAX since it does not apply to the sack size/type being used in the presort.
 

Resolution

UPDATED: April 20, 2017

Once you match the ALG LV and the BG MAX to the same container size/type, then the presort should match up your request.

*---+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7
ALG LV       1 1 

BG MAX 1                   00050      

or


*---+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7
ALG LV       7 7 

BG MAX 7                   00050
