    Description:
    Is there a way to change a Patrons ID without deleting the user and re-adding?

    For instance, if a user has 999999999 as the patron ID, but we need for this to be the z308 type 03 alternate ID, with a system-assigned patron # replacing it.

    Can any thing can be done without deleting the patron?

    Resolution:
    There is no way to change the patron ID in the GUI. You need to delete the patrons and then re-add them.

    The p_cir_23 service can be be run with "Range type" "ID" and "From" nnnnnnnnn, "To" nnnnnnnnn to delete all the patrons in a particular number range.

    Then you can run p_file_20 with a corrected input file to recreate the patron records.
