    Derived analytics have wrong format

    When we create an analytic using "Derive new record" they are all created with the format "BK"

    How do I get them to create the analytic based on the format of the main record?

    When you click on Edit and "Derive record" in Cataloging, there are three choices. The first is "Create analytic record" and the third is "Create analytic record using fix_doc_new (son)".

    As you note, the "Create analytic record" always creates a BK-format record.

    But we find that the "Create analytic record using fix_doc_new (son)" creates a record with the same FMT as the parent. The fields which are transferred to the derived record are a bit different for the third vs. the first. But the third is configurable using the $data_tab/tab_fix_new. So I'm thinking that if you don't like the fields with the third, you can change them.
