    Cannot retrieve last-doc-number from .z52 when running manage-500

    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type:  Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care



    The following error appears in the manage-500 log file:


    Oracle error: update_cursor z52 
    ORA-00903: invalid table name 

    Error (b_manage_500_b) : Cannot retrieve last-doc-number from .z52 


    This is occurring because the system is doing some checking in preparation for creation of Holdings. The system takes the value you indicated in HOL Library field of the submission to do a lookup of the corresponding z52 table. Since you don't want to create Holdings and have therefore left this field blank on the form, this error is reported. You can safely ignore the error in this situation.
