If you add a new borrower and do not give a reader number or password or barcode, the system assigns one.
For example reader number PID394, password PID498 and barcode PB413
Where do these numbers come from? I looked in util G/2 I do not see a "last-nnn-number" of these.
Also, where are the prefixes from. I looked in circ.ini and do not see PB or PID.
These values do come from util G / 2. The reason you did not see them is perhaps because you were not looking in the correct library. Though the patrons are stored in the usr_library they are also connected to specific ADM libraries. As described in the article " util/g/2 counters not being used in patron creation ", the util g/2 counters (such as, last-bor-id and last-bor-id-1) in the ADM library take precedence.
Also, the reason it is using variables from util G/2 is because you have it defined as such DEFAULT-BOR tab100(also in usr library).
Here are relevant values in tab100 (see header for more)
Definition for DEFAULT-BOR tab100:
DEFAULT-BOR-ID=Y [patron ID, z303_rec_key, z308_rec_key type "0"]
DEFAULT-BOR-ID-1=Y [patron barcode, z308_rec_key type "1"]
Here are relevant parts of UTIL G/2 (in usr_library)
UTIL G / 2
6. last-bor-id 394 y S PID
7. last-bor-id-1 413 y S PB
8. last-bor-id-2 0 y S PS
9. last-bor-verify-1 498 y S PID
10. last-bor-verify-2 413 y S P1-
11. last-bor-verify-3 0 y S P2-
