    Adding subfields to pc_tab_short.eng

    Is it possible to add multipe subfields to a listing in pc_tab_short.eng?

    Catalogers here would like subfields b,n, and p added to the title (245) field in the brief lists, but the table looks like it's only got space for one subfield.

    As noted in KB's 4884 and 5293, the edit_field.eng format "S" ID's are involved in this....

    Your abc01 edit_field.eng currently has this:

    1 # 245## S
    2 a
    2 k

    I suggest that you change it to:

    1 # 245## S
    2 a A ^
    2 b A ^
    2 k A ^
    2 n A ^
    2 p A ^

    and restart the pc_server.

    See KB 5446 for adding subfields to the GUI Browse "LC Call No. + Location" Title column (-- which comes from the z13).
