Re: ARB Subscription Problem Showing Recurring Billing "N"

This is actually the correct behavior for an Automated Recurring Billing (ARB) subscription.  The recurring billing flag that you are pointing to here is not directly a part of the ARB system.  This flag is something sent to the payment processor to advise them that you have already processed payments for this customer and that this is a follow-up payment.  Setting this flag as true for the first payment of a newly created (or updated) subscription would be incorrect.
