    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?

    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.
