    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20


    Header of ./xxx01/tab/tab_merge_overlay contains the following note regarding identification of preferred record:
    “when running file-99, file-93, manage-18 and oclc_server with merge_doc_overlay or tab_merge_adv_overlay, the preferred record is the record in the incoming load file.In order to change direction add preferred_doc_switch to tab_preferred; it changes the direction and switches between the preferred and the non-preferred records.”

    Does this apply to Advanced Generic Vendor Records Loader (file-90) also?


    Yes, this is also valid for Advanced Generic Vendor Records Loader (file-90)
