    Where do the values of the $1000, $1100, $1200, $1300, and $1400 placeholders in ./www_f_lng/item-hold-request-head (which appear on the Hold Request screen in the Web) come from?


    The "Item is on an open shelf" in ./www_f_lng/item-hold-request-head is produced by this line in ./error_lng/check_hold_request:

    6011 L Item is on an open shelf

    "Item status: Regular loan (01) Call number: HP123 D45" in ./www_f_eng/item-hold-request-head is produced by this line in ./error_eng/check_hold_request:

    6012 L Item status: $2 ($1) Call number: $3, $4

    Variable $1200, $1300, and $1400 are present in item-hold-request-head to accommodate other messages which *might* be generated by check_hold_request. For example, it can generate a 6014 message:



    6014 L Item is expected


    Additional Information
