    Is it possible to export non-numeric fields using p_print_03 or other jobs?

    The option "MARC with alphanumeric tags" (value "M2"), included in the print-03 Format dropdown, can be used. (This is in the distributed ./pc_b_lng/print-03.xml file.) 


    Additional Information

    One can, of course, also output the records in ALEPH Sequential format, which preserves all the fields and which works just fine if one is not sending the records to a vendor but rather doing some kind of internal processing.

    The option of including non-numeric tags is also included in the file-12 ("Convert ALEPH Sequential to MARC Communication Format"), export-01, and export-02 Services.
