    Browse search in GUI client can't be limited to a particular logical base

    When doing a browse search in the GUI Client, we cannot do a search by base. The results are always from SYS01 (bib record database). This was a problem in v17. At that time you said "It's conceivable that tab_sub_lib_sort and tab_item_list_order could be used at some time in the future to sort/filter these GUI Browse results -- but that is clearly not the case now." (Knowledge Base #8192-888)

    Now that we are in v18, have these 2 tables been developed to sort/filter on the base?

    I believe, based on KB 8192-888, that what you mean is that when you check 'Include Bib/HOL data', the returned Browse List includes all libraries which have a book containing the heading -- even though you have limited the search to a specific library.

    I find that if I un-check 'Include Bib/HOL data', the list of libraries which I see in the Full record display which I get when I click on a heading *can* be limited to the particular base. (The pc_sear_edit_docx_999 which produces the ITMn display consults the tab_sub_lib_sort and tab_item_list_order tables.)

    If that is the case, then we would need to request an enhancement to have the base filtering extend to the 'Include Bib/HOL data' display -- which has not been done up to this point.

    [From site:] This now works fine as you explain to 'un-check' 'Include BIB/HOL data'.
