    $$k subfield omitted from z30_call_no on notices and in OPAC Items list

    • Article Type: General

    I'd like to get $$k into the z30_call_no for notices that are sent to patrons (such as the p_cir_51 overdue notices and the hold request letters).

    Also, the $$k does not show up in the OPAC Holdings Detail, Items list, call numbers.

    For example:

    z30_call_no .... $$k[CD]$$hM644$$i.E34 S77 2006

    prints/displays as: M644 .E34 S77 2006

    The site's xxx50 edit_field.eng had no LOC## D entry and the wildcard LOC## # lacked the "k" subfield. Adding the "k" to the LOC## # entry corrected both these problems.

    Background: The xxx01/form_eng/global.trn has the line:
    z30-call-no LOCATION S z30-call-no-type

    and the form_xml_translate_location program calls edit_z30_location, which, in turn, calls the edit_field program which looks for a LOC field with edit_field ID "D" in the xxx50 edit_field.eng table.

    Additional Information
