    Assign Filing Routine to Fields for Sorting OPAC Brief List

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

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Assign a filing routine to fields than can be used for sorting in the OPAC brief list
    For example, make call number sorting numerical instead of alphabetical.

    For OPAC brief list field sorting, a filing routine is assigned in table xxx01/tab/tab_sort, column 2.
    Numerical sorting can be provided by adding the filing routine "expand_num" in xxx01/tab/tab_filing which pads call numbers with leading zeros to provide numerical order in a text field.
