    Items Status Change Doesn't Change Due Hour in Loan-Receipt-00

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

    The item status of the following recorded has been changed to Code 24 (4 hrs. loan), however, it displays the due hour as the current time of the check-out PC station.

    Please see the following due date slip for more information. The corresponding Oracle table field is z36-due-hour. Your help is highly appreciated.


    Loan Date: 09/Nov/2007
    Barcode: 31741107622849
    ID: 5008018
    Due Date: 09/Nov/2007
    Due Hour: 03:50 PM
    Call No: Software (Logic Pro software dongle) 2
    Copy Number: 2
    Title: Software -- Logic Pro software dongle.

    The Hour paramenter is column 9 in tab16.

    Which tab16 line will be used is determined by:
    the Group ID for tab16,
    the item_status, and
    the patron status.

    In this case we find that z30/item 002106883-000020 has ""MULTI" as its sublibrary, and "24" as its item status.

    Consulting $alephe_tab/tab_sub_library, we find that sublibrary MULTI has "MULTI" as its "Group ID for tab16" (col 7):

    ! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
    MULTI 1 ABC50 L Student Multimedia Design Cntr ABC15 MULTI 17S ABC50

    Further, consulting the abc50 tab16 we find that there is no "MULTI 24" line.

    You need to either add a "MULTI 24 ..." line or, alternatively, a "##### 24 ..." line or a "MULTI ## ..."
