    Deleted 852s by accident running p_manage_21

    I accidentally deleted a lot of 852 tags when running p-manage-21 (by setting Delete Field to Yes when it should have been No).

    The deleted 852s were in the holdings (ABC60).

    How can I best correct this?

    1. create a file with lines like the following:

    000012345 852n L $$axxxxxx$$bSSSSS$$cCCCCCC$$hxxxxx$$ixxxxx

    <where "000012345" is the abc60 record number and "n" is the call number type>

    2. Run p_manage_18 specifying:

    the file from step 1 as the Input File,
    "Update current records" as the Procedure to Run,
    "Append fields to a record" for "If updating current records",
    "Full" for the Indexing value,
    "NO-FIX" for the Fix routine,
    Blank for Character conversion,
    "Multi-user" if run when pc_server is up; otherwise, "Single-user".
