    Adding alternate patron ID field to Cash Export Report

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

    We would like to add Z308-KEY-TYPE=02 (patron alternate ID) to the Cash Export Report. The value in this field of our patron records is the campus DBMS ID for our patrons; it links to the bursar's financial records.

    Currently, only Z308-KEY-TYPE=01 appears in the Report.

    I have edited abc01/form_eng/bursar_export_report.xsl to be:

    - <xsl:call-template name="display-grid-gen">
    <xsl:with-param name="label" select="'Patron ID'" />
    <xsl:with-param name="value" select="./z303-id" />
    <xsl:with-param name="header" select="$header" />
    - <!-- insert alternate ID for campus billing -->
    - <xsl:call-template name="display-grid-gen">
    <xsl:with-param name="label" select="'College ABC ID'" />
    <xsl:with-param name="value" select="./z308-id-02" />
    <xsl:with-param name="header" select="$header" />
    - <!-- end insertion -->

    The extra section creates another column in our report, but there is no data.

    As can be seen in the ./form_eng/cash-export.xsl file, this is done by specifying z302-key-0n :

    <xsl:with-param name="value" select="./z302-key-01"/>

    You would do the same, except specify "./z302-key-02".

    (Note: The z302 is a virtual record combining fields from the z303, z304, z305, and z308; it is generated for printing purposes.)

    But, the job this is needed for is the p_cash_09 (rather than p_cash_10) and the b_cash_09 program isn't including the z302. We are requesting this in a separate SI.

    Additional Information
