    ADM number different on BIB than the correct ADM with order information

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    We have BIB records ie 339107 with an original ADM # 339108 with order# 95581 info, however, this ADM number became detached and a new ADM #339242 was added to the BIB # 339107.

    How do we go about correcting the ADM number to the correct one, and remove the incorrect adm #339242. We have read KB 4017 which doesn't seem to apply or isn't documented enough for us to follow. This affects approx 200 BIB records.

    [From Jerry:]
    Connect to the ABC50 library in Cataloging.
    Delete the incorrect ADM record 339242.
    Call up the (correct) ADM record 339108 and Save it to the server.

    [From site:]
    All caused by badly created exp_current files.
    Reloading the data corrected the problem.
