    GUI-created patron given system ID "000000000

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

    Problem Symptoms:
    GUI-created patron was given a system ID of "000000000". ID should be of the form "ID-nnnnn", which is what is specified in the xxx50 util g/2 last-bor-id counter.

    Uncertain, but probably because the operator accidentally typed- or pasted-in the "000000000".

    Delete/recreate patron in GUI Circ, making a note of the patron information before doing so.

    Additional Information

    The normal thing is for the operator to leave the Patron ID field blank and let the system assign the ID, but the system does *not* enforce this and *does* allow the operator type or paste something in.
