    Adding "UPD" field to authority records

    • Article Type: General

    I have found that our imported authority records (from OCLC after STP) have no ‘UPD’ field.
    The converted authority records (before STP) did create this field.
    We want to set the UPD=N, but I couldn’t find the documentation that tells me where to set it for the OCLC imported authority records.

    Please see CRM Knowledge Base record 3940.

    If there is no ./xxx10/tab/import directory, you should do mkdir to create it.

    The positions in the import fix files, such as the suggested fix_upd_n file, *are* significant.
    The line in KB 3940 has the proper spacing. If you want confirm this via the header, you can look at the ./usm01/tab/import/generic_fix file.
