    In MCS50, sublibrary MDE, item with status 31, which should have a 7 day loan period, is giving a due date of 9/1/09.

    This is a school library and will be closing at the end of this week (5/22/09), patron record expiration is 5/31/09. Where is this due date pulling from?

    The tab100 BOR-EXPIRY-DUE-DATE "sets the due date for loan and renew to the local patron expiry date if the local patron expiry date is earlier than the computed due date", but the MCS50 tab100 has no BOR-EXPIRY-DUE-DATE parameter and is, therefore, defaulting to 'N' (No).

    You need to add "BOR-EXPIRY-DUE-DATE=Y" to tab100 and restart the pc_server.
