    Message "... indicator in tag nnn is not valid" for fields with blank indicators

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    * Editing a record in Cataloging module, the check on record display the message about invalid indicator
    * In ./xxx01/tab/check_doc_line table the indicator for field is defined as blank

    * In the ./xxx01/tab/check_doc_line table, the blank indicators should be defined by either an actual "space" or "nothing".
    * If col.6 or col.7 in check_doc_line table contains "nothing" preceded by a "space" between columns, the error message about invalid indicator is displayed

    1. Edit ./xxx01/tab/check_doc_line table
    2. For tags reported in the error message:
    insert a space to col.6 (1st indicator) or/and col.7 (2nd indicator)
    remove all the spaces after hyphen in col.5.
    Both achieve the same result.
    3. Save the table and restart PC Server
