    Change in due dates automatically taking effect immediately in v20?

    Has something changed in v20 so that changing due dates in tab16 take effect immediately? Prior to this, whenever we made changes to due dates, we either waited for a system restart overnight so that z301 was re-created, or we immediately dropped z301 and recreated it if we wanted the new dates to take effect immediately.

    Yesterday morning I made changes to some due dates, but did not drop and recreate the z301 table. However, a few hours later, the new due dates began to be applied. I've checked with our systems staff and no one dropped the table. No one even restarted the pc-server.

    I'm pretty certain that there has been no change in v20. Could it be that your changes occurred before the first Circulation transaction of the morning?

    As described in KB 150: "The first Circ transaction each day recreates the z301 with the correct values for that day."
