    CSCR-ILL-BARCODE checksum_create_z30_by_doc_no 

    ... in table xxx50/tab/tab_checksum which means that ILL barcode should be created from ADM system number and item sequence of the arrived item is not working as expected.


    Example: ILL borrowing request (xxx40 system number) is 122, the ADM number is 5000, item sequence is 10; the correct item barcode should be 5000-10, however the system will generate 122-


    Please use the following configuration instead: 
    CSCR-ILL-BARCODE checksum_create_ill_barcode 

    neither checksum_create_z30_by_seq 
    checksum_create_z30_by_doc_no are intended to be used for creating barcodes in ILL. 

    Please see also documentation: 'Aleph SysLib Guide - Integrated ILL', chapter 'The ILL Item values'. 

    The system will generate barcodes of the following structure then: 

    Example for Request number 561: 

    * First item: ILL-561 
    * Second item: ILL-561-2 
    * Third item: ILL-561-3
