    * In ./xxx01/tab/rep_tab_short.lng format 003 has Corporate Name in col.1 (tag 710## in UNIMARC format)
    * If the tag contains more than one subfield $b (Subdivision), only the first one is printed using Print Catalog Records - Columnar Format (print-08) service
    * This happens also if col.15 of ./xxx01/tab/rep_tab_short.lng is set with Y ( for all occurrences of the field)


    * Col.15 in ./xxx01/tab/rep_tab_short.lng refers to the occurrences of the field, not of a subfield.
    * Multiple occurrences of a subfield are managed in ./xxx01/tab/edit_field.lng
    * Header of ./xxx01/tab/rep_tab_short.lng states:
    "The content can be formatted using edit_field (line ID in edit_field is 'S')"
    * Edit ./xxx01/tab/edit_field.lng
    * For tag code 710 with ID code "S" (or "#" if not present) set col.8 with value A ( to indicate all subfields with the code)
    For example:
    1 # 71#0# S -34
    2 a
    2 b A ^:^
    2 c ^
    2 d ^
    2 e ^

    Additional Information

    The example is on UNIMARC format but the solution is valid also for MARC 21
