    Keyword search retrieves author name from 100 field but not 700 field

    • Article Type: General

    Problem Symptoms:
    A keyword search on "Calvary, Ga?«lle" retrieves records with the name in the 100 field, but not those with the name in the 700 field.

    Cause:
    The xxx01 tab11_word shows has this:

    100## -6 01 WRD WAU
    ...
    700## -fghklmnoprst56 03 WAU

    That is, word-breaking routine 01 is being used for the 100 field, while routine 03 is being used for the 700.

    A comparison of these routines shows that 01 in tab_word_breaking has this line:

    01 # to_blank !@#$%^()_={}[]:";<>,.?|\

    while 03 has this:

    03 # to_blank !@#$%^()_={}[]:"';<>,.?|\/?«?»\U+00A0

    It seems these extra characters are affecting the indexing of the diacritic.

    Resolution:
    Either change the xxx01 tab11_word entry for the 700 field (from 03 to 01) or change the tab_word_breaking 03 to_blank line.
