    Global replace to catalog

    We want to make the following changes to our catalog (true for all occurrences of the fields listed that do not already have the indicator listed):
    [1] 041 1st indicator should be 1;
    [2] 082 1st indicator should be 1;
    [3] 505 1st indicator should be 2;
    [4] 600 1st indicator should receive be 1; [5] 600 2nd indicator should be 0; [6] 650 2nd indicator should be 0; [7] for all items where field 008 positions 35-37 = HEB, make field 008 positions 15-16 = is.

    How can this be done?

    You may do this in one of two ways:
    Option 1:
    1. Retrieve desired records with service "Retrieve catalog records (ret-01)
    2. Print all fields of records with "Download machine readable records (print-03)"
    3. Edit records to your desire
    4. Upload records with "Load Catalog Records (manage-18)" using "replace entire record" option.

    Option 2:
    Where possible use the service "Global Changes (manage-21)" to make each change. Here you can first make a report and then actually make the change.
