    260 Field Cataloging Error Messages Split Into 2 Lines

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    [1] In Cataloging, create a new record (Cataloging menu > New Record > BK)
    [2] Enter a 260 field with subfield c = 8 (or any single digit)
    [3] Press CTRL-W (Check Field)

    Problem: The error messages both are split and written across 2 lines.

    Removing the "##" signs from after the 260 in check_doc_line_contents, fixes the error message
    However, since indicators are legal for the 260 field, this is not a fix, only a partial workaround.

    This issue is still open and was escalated to Development for further investigation <2010-07-25 23:50:02>.
    From issue resolution: v. 21 - rc #44. Uploaded to DEV[01/03/2012 13:58:17 Judith Fraenkel]
