    Fine type 5 for very long overdue loans are not correctly calculated

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    * An item loaned on 3 Aug 2009 was returned three years late
    * The patron was blocked from borrowing items or renewing loans only for a short period and not for a period equal to the number of days the item was overdue.

    Cause:
    The system is incapable of handling more than 999 days that are added to a certain date

    Resolution:
    * An item that is overdue for more than 3 years must be a rarity
    * The system is incapable of handling more than 999 days that are added to a certain date.
    * It is necessary to keep a close eye on patrons in order not to reach situations where an item is overdue for more than 999 days
