VBASS File Column Definition

Hi,

 

I'm busy consuming the data from the VBASS Bin files and there are a few columns that I can't find any reference to in the documentation. Can someone educate this Luddite around what they mean?

 

ALMInd

ComboCrdCd

CommrclCrdLvl2Ind

CommrclCrdLvl3EnhInd

OnlineGamblBlockInd (Assume if this is allowed to be used for Gambling/Betting sites?)

POSDomesticOnlyInd (Assume this is for only local transactions to country of issue?)

RegulatedBinCd

SettlmntMatchInd

SharedBinInd (Assume this is for bins shared between issuers?)

 

Thanks in advance! 

Ian
