    Configuration files used in loading bib records

    It seems there has been a change to the xxxxx.def loader configuration files with the new generic loader. What tables are being used?

    In v18-up, the oclc_server, p_file_90, p_file_92, p_file_93, and p_file_99 bib-loading programs call the generic_loader routine. The generic_loader programs use the following files:

    in v18: tab_z30 and tab_mapping, in the ADM/tab
    in v19-up: tab_loader, tab_loader_def and tab_mapping, in the ADM/tab.

    p_file_96 and p_file_98 in *all* versions are using the "Default Values Input File" specified in the job submission; by default, the bib library ./tab/import/tab_96_def and tab_98_def.

    In v20, the structure for 049 field for *all the tables* has been changed from 10 to 20 characters length.
