    Generic fix routine with CHANGE-SUBFIELD doesn't do anything

    I am trying to change the subfield code for 500 field, subfield "u"s, to a "b" using "CHANGE-SUBFIELD" as defined in the "How to set up a script..." documentation? I tried this unsuccessfully using this string

    1 500## CHANGE-SUBFIELD u,b in import/ornl.fix

    Of course neither u or b are valid subfields, but my main objective is to remove the u. Is my command line wrong?

    The "CHANGE-SUBFIELD" text seems to be one position too far to the right. Please take the lines which I have included below and paste them into Notepad. You will see that CHANGE-SUBFIELD is too far to the right.

    ! 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
    1 500## CHANGE-SUBFIELD u,b

    Note: This change could also be made using the p_manage_21 Global Change service.
