I think it may be an error from PayPal.  I could find no defined value for a blank in the result code, or in the transaction result.  Here is what I researched.
https://www.paypal.com/ipn
https://cms.paypal.com/cms_content/US/en_US/files/developer/IPNGuide.pdf
https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/e_howto_api_nvp_errorcodes
https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/vhelp/paypalmanager_help/result_codes.htm
https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/vhelp/paypalmanager_help/result_values_for_communication_errors.htm

See especially this:
https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/vhelp/paypalmanager_help/contacting_verisign.htm

A search of https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/helpweb?cmd=_help for "resultcode" or "result code" returned nothing.  That leads me to believe that what we need next from you is a link to the online man page that documents the exact name of the field you are trying to use here.

I meant payment_status not resultcode
so I opened a similar question

Yeah, I've done that sort of thing a few times myself!  But thanks for the points anyway.  I'll see if I can help with the other Q. ~Ray
