    How to move identical fields to ARC?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct; Direct; Local; Total Care

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Providing BIB fields to ARC is done using the z13 record (tab22 or tab22_arc). In case you have several identical fields (same field code) only the first one is considered and the other fields get lost. How to move identical fields to ARC?

    Currently Aleph is not designed to move identical fields to ARC meaning for fields added in xxx01/tab/tab22 or xxx01/tab/tab22_arc only the first field occurrence is considered. An according enhancement request was already placed.

    Additional Information


    Using a specific script makes it possible to rename the double fields so that they get own field codes and can be added to tab22 or tab22_arc as single fields. Find an example in attached document.
