-6 Errors comprise about 4-6% of our install total currently.  In the current implementation, the -6 code is sent from 5 different places in code.  In order to evaluate the high number of -6 errors we need to distinguish between errors coming from those 5 different places.  The return codes should be changed in those 5 places to be unique.

SUGGESTED FIX Change -6 error codes to be -61 thru -65. This way a query for errors containing "-6" will still return errors from all 5 places where -6 was previously sent, but we can also break down each individual error separately

EVALUATION The return code values should be changed from -6 to unique values.
