How Can I Verify If an MCO Has Been Exchanged?

When a Miscellaneous Charge Order (MCO) has been exchanged, ARC's Document Retrieval Service (DRS) will display the associated new exchange transaction information. In addition to the MCO’s original issue information, DRS will list the new document number for which the MCO was exchanged, the issue date of the exchange, and the Period Ending Data (PED). An unused MCO will be displayed in DRS only with its original issue information in a single row of data. Please note that DRS will not be updated or reflect usage when the MCO is used directly with the airline.
