    Fine for overdue recalls but NOT regular loans?

    I found KB 8192-4556 very helpful describing recalls setup, however I have one question. On our production environment you can see that we do not have fines for sublibrary UMAIN for regular loans. I would however like to fine overdue recalls? Is it possible to not fine regular loans but fine on overdue recalls?

    If tab100 OVERDUE-RECALL-RATIO=Y, then, if the overdue fine is zero, any multiple of the overdue fine is also going to be zero. But since you have OVERDUE-RECALL-RATIO=N in the abc50 tab100, the values in tab18 lines 0050-0055 are treated as actual amounts.

    But since all of the '0050 UMAIN' lines have blank in column 6, the overdue recall fine is always zero.

    If you place an amount in these column 6's, that amount will be assessed (per day) when the loan passes the overdue recall date.

    See KB 16384-43489 for revisions to 0050-0055 descriptions in v20 tab18.eng header.

    The Grace period can come into play. KB 8192-4556 has been updated to indicate this.
