    Is there no longer an expand for p_print_03 in tab_expand?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    We're trying to output bib records using p_print_03 in Aleph v18, but we no longer seem to be able to output the TYP field. In v18's tab_expand I find the following:

    ! PRINT-REC - p_print_05_a - Print "Non-preferred" Catalog Records
    ! (Service)

    In v15.5, the PRINT-REC "expand menu" was described as follows:

    ! PRINT-REC - p_print_03_a - download records (Service)

    Does p_print_03 no longer use tab_expand? If it does, which "expand menu" does it use? In our testing, we don't seem to be able to expand the TYP field in outputting bib records via p_print_03, using the following line, which worked in v15.5:

    PRINT-REC expand_doc_type tab_type_config

    Please advise.

    Starting with version 16, p_print_03 changed so that, rather than having the hard-coded name ("PRINT-REC") for the expand routine, the name of the routine is a variable selected from a dropdown (of all tab_expand entries) on the p_print_03 submission screen.

    You can continue to use "PRINT-REC" as the expand label, but you need to specify it in the submission.
