    Adding or deleting columns to pc_tab_col.lng

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23


    Is it possible to add more fields to those listed in pc_tab_col.lng (-- specifically, the item material type) or to delete columns (e.g. author)?


    (1) It is not possible to add columns to this list -- except via program enhancement.


    (2) Of course it's possible to delete columns from the list. E.g. delete the "author" column from the list loan short list


    PC_CIR_B_LOAN_LIST   L Author               19 000 04 C04        Author

    PC_CIR_B_LOAN_LIST   L Bibliographic Info   01 020 04 C04        BIB Document Heading

    PC_CIR_B_LOAN_LIST   L Due Date             02 020 04 C04        Due Date



    Please note that it's also possible to have an individual view on each PC by clicking the right mouse button in the table header and then selecting the fields which one want to see. I think you should prefer that option rather that deleting the author column.

    Additional Information

    Note: there may be columns which are defined in pc_tab_col.eng as width-percentage 000, and they may be increased. When they are 000 they do not appear.
