    Changing the 852 1st indicator when running p_manage_50

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 17.01

    Description:
    We would like the holding records created with p_manage_50 to have the form:
    852 0 b MAIN
    rather than
    852 b MAIN
    How do we achieve this?

    Resolution:
    You can control the first indicator on the 852 (CALL-NO-TYPE in tab_hol_item_map), but you can’t control the second indicator.
    However, p-manage-50 does call tab_fix in the XXX60 library (section MNG50). You can use this to call a fix script to change the second indicator. The script routine would be CHANGE-SECOND-IND.

    1. In the xxx60/tab/import directory create a fix routine, based on generic_fix, for example fix_852_ind:
    ! 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
    !-!!!!!-!!-!-!!!-!!!-!!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!!!
    1 LDR 009 009 CHANGE-SECOND-IND #,1

    2. Add this file to tab_fix using the fix_doc_do_file_08 program name in column 2.
    The relevant line in $data_tab/tab_fix will appear as follows

    ! 1 2 3
    !!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!>
    MNG50 fix_doc_do_file_08 fix_852_ind
