    Change 035 Field Containing Old System Number

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

    We want to move our old system number, currently in the 001 field to an 0359 field and replace it with the new Aleph system number.
    What steps are required?

    This fix has 1 step in a generic_fix file and 2 steps in the tab_fix file.

    First copy the old system number currently found in the 001 field to a new 0359a field.
    1 001 COPY-SYSTEM-NUMBER 0359 ,L,a

    Next place that fix in the ABC01/tab/tab_fix file and add an additional step after it to overwrite the 001 field with the current system number. Note that the order is important here.
    FX001 fix_doc_do_file_08 fix001
    FX001 fix_doc_001 OVERWRITE

    Once those files are ready and the pc_server is restarted, run p_manage_37 with the FX001 fix on all the records, for example:

    (keywords: manage_37 p-manage-37)
