    Basic steps in Publishing (for Primo)

    We want to create a tar file for use with Primo from our abc01 bib records. What are the basic steps for this?

    You will need to:

    Make sure that the abc01 tab_publish has a line for the PRIMO-FULL dataset with "MARC_XML" in column 5

    Make sure that the abc01 tab_expand has a line for the expand specified in column 4 of tab_publish

    Run p_publish_04 (in abc01) (to create the z00p) and then

    Run p_publish_06 to read the z00p and create the tar files.

    Start ue_21 in abc01 (for ongoing updating of z00p).

    The z00p resides in the $usr_library.

    You should do the initial run of p_publish_06 (in abc01) with:

    "Range of Documents": 000000000 to 999999999,

    Input File Name ... blank, and

    Update Date Flag = Yes.

    See KB 16384-9185 and "The Aleph Publishing Mechanism.pdf" on the Doc Portal for additional information.
