    Fines for Closed Days

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 17.01

    Description:
    Tab 17 has been modified to show closed days for October 30-31 and November 03.

    From util/f/2/8, the days for the sublibrary ABCML are shown as closed.

    The util a/17/1 routine was run to ensure the immediate application of the changes. However patrons are still being charged fines for these closed days.

    Attached is a file showing the fines being applied. This file was created from within the Util, but it is a reflection of what is happening from within the Ciculation GUI.

    Resolution:
    The problem is that you are specifying Fine Method #7 in tab16, column 14:

    ! 1 1 1
    ! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 4 5 16 7 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27
    !!!!!-!!-!!-!!-!-!!!!!!!!-!!-!-!!!!-!!!!-!!!!!-!!!-!!!-!-!-!!!!!!!!-!-!!!!-!!!-!!!-!!-!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!-!!!-!

    ABC16 01 ## 07 + 00000014 00 A 2400 0000 00025 010 010 7 + 00000014 007 000 01 D028 0000025.00 000 0

    Fine method 7 is a "total days" method:

    ! 7 - include recall - behaves like type 4 (total days)

    The equivalent "open days" method is "D":

    ! D - include recall - behaves like type 2 (open-days)

    You need to change tab16 column 14 from "7" to "D".
