    Making deleted-items-report include leading zeros in doc numbers

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

    global.trn in form_eng changes doc numbers to integers, so the leading 000s are missing in the deleted-items-report produced by p_manage_33. We want to use these doc numbers to feed into a global change. Will the various services accept doc numbers without their leading zeros? Or do we need to change global.trn or add something to deleted-items-report.trn to override the "global" integer? If the latter, how would we code that? Would we put z30-doc-number NONE ?

    Most services do *not* accept doc numbers without their leading zeros.
    You can set the xxx01/form_eng/global.trn entry so that the leading zeroes are not stripped, by having NONE as the type in column 2. For example:
    z30-doc-number NONE S
