    Bib key range increased to high number

    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

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

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

    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 ****


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

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