When a parent creates a new Blackbaud NetCommunity (BBNC) account with a different Online ID than what is configured in their existing The Education Edge (EE) record, the error may be produced when processing the application. This can occur when a sibling is already enrolled in the school, the parent has an existing Individual Record with an Online ID specified, and the parent creates a new login in BBNC to submit an online application for the new sibling.
