    Correcting records via loading service

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01


    What is the best way to load corrected records back into the database?
    The records were exported (only the tags involved) and corrected outside Aleph. A file in Aleph Sequential format ready to upload to correct the records is available.
    What would be the fastest way to process the file? There’s no need to re-index the records.


    Run “Load ALEPH Sequential MARC Records (manage-18)” with option "Indexing=None". The service runs very fast and if e.g. started on a weekend there should be no problem.

    Additional Information

    To be on the save side you could also split the input file into 4 files with 100.000 records each (or even smaller).
