    How can a patron's pincode be created automatically when adding a new patron?


    Answer    last-bor-verify-1
    The pincode is created by counter "" in ADM or USR library. Open the list of counters with util g/2.


    Additional Information
    From "System Librarian's Guide - Circulation", Chapter 1, "Patrons in a Multi-ADM-Environment":

       "Whether or not logins and passwords are automatically created based on system counters depends on the variables DEFAULT-BOR-ID, DEFAULT-BOR-ID-1, DEFAULT-BOR-VERIFY-1 and DEFAULT-BOR-VERIFY-2 as defined in the ADM library tab100 table.

       "If the system is set to automatically create login and passwords, it will first try to use the ADM library counters last-bor-id, last-bor-id-1, last-bor-verify-1 and last-bor-verify-2. If the relevant counters are not found in the ADM library, the usr_library counters will be used."
