    Double index entries for AUT index in BIB database

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph

    Problem Symptoms:
    In the index list of authors, corporate authors, subjects etc. an identical index entry for one author, ... appears double in some cases. Both entries have linked BIB records.

    Cause:
    Configuration change

    Resolution:
    Filing-Text (responsible for display of index entries in GUI) of ONE record contains a ?#? before the IDN:

    Util f/4/z01
    new key = K, exit = Q, continue = RETURN
    k
    key 1 = 1, key 2 = 2, key 3 = 3 key 4 = 4
    1
    Enter start point (CCCCCATTTTTTTT)
    PPE LUreland, Per Sture

    01 z01_acc
    02 z01_rec_key
    03 acc_code ..............PPE
    03 alpha .................L
    03 filing_text ...........URELAND PER STURE #DE588109293967


    The other record has not a ?#? in the filing text:

    01 z01_acc
    02 z01_rec_key
    03 acc_code ..............PPE
    03 alpha .................L
    03 filing_text ...........URELAND PER STURE DE588109293967

    Supposedly xxx01/tab/tab_filing was changed and parameter ?add_prefix_hash? was added.

    When you re-index the BIB record which leads to the index entry without ?#? the index entries are updated correctly

    Run ?Update Headings Index (manage-02)? in order to reindex all index entries and afterwards ?Delete Unlinked Headings (manage-15)? so that the useless index entries get deleted.
