Allow duplicate 997's to create SAP Status Message instead of failing

Today in SCBN, if a partner resends a 997or sends a new 997 for an already acknowledged document, and the 997 is used to generate a status message back to SAP, the process fails. SCBN should allow for SAP Status messages to be generated and sent to the client's SAP System regardless of how many 997's have been received for the original document. Our specific use case involves a trading partner who routinely has to reprocess documents in their EDI system. On each reprocess it sends the 997 back to us and SCBN. For the first 997 received, the SAP status message is generated correctly. For any subsequent 997 received, SCBN fails the process creating unnecessary failures for the support team to manage and inflating the dashboard error message reporting.
