    Closing serial orders in batch

    Question

    Is there is an Aleph batch service which closes serial orders and subscriptions? Over 1000 serial order records need to be closed. The acq-28 process updates the order status to "closed," but the following also need to be done:

    1) Update the "To date" on the "subscription info" tab for the serial subscription.
    2) Remove any action dates that would generate claims from the subscription order log.

    Answer

    Though the acq-27 service closes orders and related subscriptions and opens new orders and subscriptions, there is no service which just *closes* the subscriptions (and removes action dates from the order log) and doesn't open new ones.

    This would need to be done using SQL.

    Additional Information

    KB 16384-49825 addresses the connection between the HOL record and the subscription.
