How hard would it be to make emerald come up with the format that
ICVerify requires? Emerald already modifies the date, e.g. by changing
9/01 into 0901. why not take the extra step and make it 0109? You could
even make a seperate CC Batch format that wouldn't conflict with the
existing ICVerify format.
