    Is it possible to retrieve local changes which were made on the local patron information?


    The information about the patron status is coming from Oracle table z305
    There is no 'history table' (e.g. z305h) for this in Aleph 20.

    Starting with Aleph 21 there is the possibility to create a log for specific changes on the patron record (z307)

    Definitions can be made in ./xxx00/tab/tab_patron_log.lng

    Example of file tab_patron_log.lng:
    001 Y Update of global patron record-Details
    002 Y Update of global patron record-Blocks
    003 Y Update of local patron record-Details
    004 Y Update of local patron record-Blocks
    005 Y Update of local patron record-Privileges
    006 Y Update of patron addresses
    007 Y Update of patron IDs

    010 Y Delete of global patron record
    011 Y Delete of local patron record
    012 Y Delete of patron address record
    013 Y Delete of patron ID

    020 Y New global patron record created
    021 Y New local patron record created
    022 Y New patron address record created
    023 Y New patron ID created

    3. Changes can be reported with the help of new service 'Patron Log Changes Report (cir-27)'
