Cannot Use F3 for 260$b

In our USM01 library, we can’t use F3 for 260$b. We get the following error message:
- - - - -
Field/subfield 260-- is not defined in scancode.dat
- - - - -
I checked the scancode.dat and it contains a 260##b line:
USM01>> grep 260 scancode.dat
USM01>> grep PUB tab00.eng
H PUB ACC 01 00 00 Publisher
USM01>> grep PUB tab11_acc
260## PUB b
Why isn't this working?
Please note the names of the F3 and F4 functions:
F3 = Search FIELD Headings of Current Base
F4 = Search SUBFIELD Headings of Current Base
scancode.dat entries that have a subfield in column 1 at the end of the field tag (position 6) are searched using F4. For example,
Changing this entry to
would make the 260 field searchable via F3, but this is not recommended.
Note: if you change the files in pc_tab/catalog then you must run util M/7 to repackage the changes.
