    Advanced Generic Vendor Records Loader (file-90): Fix Routine during Merge

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    For new records loaded by Advanced Generic Vendor Records Loader (file-90), the Fix Routine works OK.
    When records merge during the load, the fix routine is not applied.

    Cause:


    Resolution:
    Fix Routine entered as parameter is not applied to the database record when records merge.
    Use Fix Routine FIL90, special default fix routine for Advanced Generic Vendor Records Loader (file-90), to fix BIB records before the load.

    Additional Information

    The Fix Routine entered as parameter to the Advanced Generic Vendor Records Loader (file-90) is applied to the records after records are loaded.
    To fix loading records *before* the load, (for example, in order to add field 049), set up fix routine FIL90 in ./xxx01/tab/tab_fix.
    Do not set up fix_doc_001 in FIL90. In order to add field 001 with record's system number, use fix_doc_001 with the Fix Routine selected as service's parameter.


    See KB 16384-43938 "Which services create field 001 with Aleph system number during BIB load?"
