If you get MARC records and want to load them into a MAB library you have to convert them into MAB format. You can do this like this:


1. create entry USMAB in tab_fix of bib library:
USMAB fix_doc_usm_del_endpunct
USMAB fix_doc_convit                 FILE=tab_fix_usm2mab
USMAB fix_doc_mab                    FUNC=INPUT,FILE=tab_fix_mab

2. Use file-01, file-02
3. Use manage-18 with fix routine USMAB to load the file into Aleph
