    How to combine repeatable subfields

    Is there a way to merge multiple subfields "i" in field 852 into one subfield 'i'?

    For example,

    If we have an 852 like the following:
    852 $$h HC415 .D5 $$i K83 $$i 2005

    Is there any way to do this?
    852 $$h HC415 .D5 $$i K83 2005

    Maybe there is an easier way to do so, but I've found fix_doc_099 program, and I use it to create a setup for merging repeatable subfields.
    The fix_doc_099 combines repeatable $$a in tag 099 and puts it into tag 997.
    First, I copy tag 852 to 099, perform fix_doc_099, and, applying more fixes, change it back to 852.

    Please see attached.
