    List by Call Number Window; tab100 ITEM-BARCODE-OR-CALL-NO

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 17.01

    We want to require that staff use the barcode in loaning/returning an item, but we do *not* want to disable searching-by-call-number from the item bar -- including clicking on the three dots "..." to open the 'Call Number List' window.

    We have found, however, that if we set the TAB100-ITEM-BARCODE-OR-CALL-NO to "N", this also disables the searching-by-call-number from the item bar.

    Specifying the ITEM-BARCODE-OR-CALL-NO=N in the xxx50 tab100, instead of the $alephe_tab/tab100, corrected this problem.

    {When it is set in the $alephe_tab/tab100 *all* the programs (cataloging, searching, etc.) use it. Whereas, when it is set in the ADM library tab100, it applies only to loan/return -- which is what you want.}
