    How to add a new index in the order index list?


    Add the new index(es) to the drop-down menu that appears in the Order Index List screen. This is done by editing the xxx50/tab/pc_tab_exp_field.lng file. In that file, the menu is identified by the ID "ACQ-INDEX-TYPE". The columns that are displayed in the Order Index List are defined in xxx01/tab/pc_tab_col.lng: PC_ACQ_INDEX. 
    In order to activate the new index(es) run "Rebuild Acquisitions Order Index (acq-04)". 
    Please note that only the following indexes can be used: 
    ON = Order number 
    AON = Order number 2 
    V = Vendor code 
    AVC = Additional vendor code 
    B = Budget 
    I = Invoice (vendor code + invoice number) 
    I2 = Invoice (invoice number + vendor code) 
    RF = Vendor reference 
    TARGT = Target ID 
    TNAME = Target name 
    GON = Group order number 
    ANOTE = Arrival note 
    OG = Order group 
    OU = Order unit


    Additional Information
    It is, however, possible to add more bibliographic indexes by editing the following table of the library’s tab directory:
    tab_acq_index (order index)
    The bibliographic indexes must be defined as indexes in all other relevant configuration.
