    Adding "UPD Y" to Subject Authority Records; "UPD N" to Other Authority Records

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

    We want imported Subject authority records to have "UPD Y" and all other authority records to have "UPD N".

    To give just Subject authorities "UPD Y" and the rest "UPD N":

    1. Include a line like this in the ./xxx10 $data_tab/tab_fix:
    XXXXX fix_doc_do_file_08 fix_upd_n

    <where "XXXXX" is the label of the fix routine which you are specifying on the authority load submission screen or -- for oclc_server, in alephe_tab/tab_oclc, or, for ue_03, in the $data_tab/tab_rlin>

    2. Create a fix_upd_n file in the ./xxx10/tab/import/ directory which looks like this:.
    1 100%% ADD-FIELD UPD ,L,$$aN

    Add the same line as the preceding for each of the following fields: 110, 111, 130, 151, 180, 181, 182, 185.

    And then add this line for the 150:.
    1 150%% ADD-FIELD UPD ,L,$$aY

    Note: If you want *all* authority records to have UPD N, then consult KB 5787.
