Missing information in EFT file when SEPA BIC number is left blank

When using SEPA, if the BIC number is left blank then the EFT file created also has a blank BIC number. According to the SEPA regulations this must add the line <FinInstnID><Othr><Id>NOTPROVIDED</Id></Othr></FinInstId>
This is resolved in patch 5 for The Raiser's Edge 7.96, released in July 2017. For more information, see What is in Patch 5 for The Raiser's Edge 7.96?
