    Commenting Out "update_z103_order_itm" and Reindexing Doesn't Correct Links

    I had an SI in which you referred to KB 8192-3449.
    On the test server, I've commented out the entry in tab_z103 for update_z103_order_itm.
    If you search on SYS01 record 3613135 - St. John's Bible you will see 70 separate Holding displays/links.
    I then saved the ABC50 3613135 record in cataloging. The SYS01 3613135 record was reindexed.
    The Z103 entries still exist.
    What am I missing?

    The following SQL shows that there is one Z68 which has "20348" as its z68_order_number:

    abc50> select z68_rec_key from z68 where z68_order_number = '20348';

    The following SQL shows that there are 73 z30's pointing to this z68 record 003613135-00005:

    abc50> select count(*) from z30 where Z30_ORDER_NUMBER = '20348';

    The tab_z103 update_z103_order_itm line (when it was still in place) generated a z103 link for each of these. Now that you have commented out this line, such links will not be generated in the future. But commenting it out does *not* cause the previous z103's to be deleted. The only ways to do that are via SQL or by re-running p_manage_12 for the BIB, Course Reserve's, HOL, and ADM's.

    {Note: In this case, the z103_rec_key_1 record number (the BIB number) is the same as the z103_rec_key record number (the ADM number). That may not always be the case. You should do UTIL-F-3-12 to check.}
