    Field 510 or 530 with URL in subfield U displays all field content as linkable

    How to avoid field 510 or 530 to appear as a link able field when there is no subfield "u"?

    Field 510 and 530 have several subfields e.g. subfield "u" for a link able URL. In order to make it possible to click the URL in the OPAC the according line in xxx01/tab/edit_doc_999.lng is defined as

    ## 530##                D LAdditional Form     Y M     E       W


    This leads to the problem that the field is always "linkable" even when there is only subfield "a". And of course if clicking on subfield "a" will not open a link. How can this be avoided and the field be handled differently dependent on the subfields?


    Add another line to xxx01/tab/edit_doc_999.lng which considers 530 without subfield "u":

    ## 530## u -            D LAdditional Form     Y       E       W
    ## 530##                D LAdditional Form     Y M     E       W


    In above example the first line is for the case that no URL is in the field, the second line is for field 530 with URL and is link able as indicated with the "M" in column 10.
