Error Generation with recurring billing not working

I'm trying to use the information in this document with recurring billing to generate errors:

 

http://www.authorize.net/files/ErrorGenerationGuide.pdf

 

However, no matter what zip or CVV I use the transactions are still accepted.

 

I know the zip is coming through correctly with the right value because it shows up in the billing information on the management console. I'm using a development account with both the production and test URLs.

It not going to generate error, ARB doesn't create a transaction until the scheduled start date. You could use AIM test the credit card info first before creating ARB, or use AIM for the first transaction and then schedule the start date for ARB to start from the 2nd charge date.

Thanks. I actually hadn't considered using AIM for the first transaction, but that's not a bad idea.
