    Deleting leading dash in Web OPAC holdings statement

    Is there a way to delete the leading dash in the holdings statement in the web opac:
    - 7(1961)-48(2002)-
    It looks like we own up through volume 7 which is incorrect.
    How can I eliminate the initial hyphen?

    What fields from the HOL record display in the Web Holdings is controlled by the xxx60 edit_doc_999.eng. The format of each of those fields is, in turn, controlled by the xxx60 edit_field.eng.

    The edit_field.eng entry for the 866 tag looks like this:

    1 # 866## D B -8
    2 a A ^-^
    2 z A ^-^

    Changing it to:

    1 # 866## D B -8
    2 a A
    2 z A

    will eliminate the initial hyphen.
