    Bib key range increased to high number

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

    Description:
    From the use of manage-18, a file which contained a high record key (010695360) caused the last-doc-number
    counter to be reset.

    Using util-G2/6, that number has now been reset to the correct range (003520432-).

    However, there are bib records in the range 010695466 to 010695624 which need to be
    re-numbered.

    1. Are there other counters which need to be reset?

    2. How can the records in that bad range be re-numbered?

    Resolution:
    There are no other counters to be concerned about. {The abc50 last-doc-number has previously been increased over 100000000 (per KB 8192-667). You can and should leave it as is.}

    In regard to the abc01 numbers, you can, if desired, follow the detailed procedure in KB 16384-22993 for running p_manage_33 and physically deleting the stub records for the 264 records with keys over 10,000,000:

    abc01@ALEPH20> select count(*) from z00 where z00_doc_number > 10000000;
    **** Hit return to continue ****

    COUNT(*)
    ----------
    264

    (and their associated ADM, HOL, and item records).

    This is not *absolutely* necessary, but I think it would be desirable.
