    Patron Additional ID's not indexed

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21

    Problem Symptoms:
    I added some additional ID's through the patron loader I can see them on the patron records in the correct place but they do not appear to have been indexed.


    Change ./tab/tab_bor_id.lng of the usr_library needs to be changed to allow searching for additional ID of type 05.

    Change col. 5 to 'Y' for the relevant line

    Example ./xxx00/tab/tab_bor_id.lng

    !1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

    05 L Additional ID 05 00 N Y Y Y Y

    Change to
    05 L Additional ID 05 00 Y Y Y Y Y

    Additional Information

    See also explanation from the table's header:

    ! COL 5. 1; ALPHA{Y,N}, UPPER; ;
    ! GUI;
    ! GUI:
    ! Can be used as a key to retrieve a Z303 record
    ! in the GUI.
    ! The value of col.5 in the line for the ID code 00 - System ID may
    ! be set to "N" if the value for ID code 01 - Barcode is
    ! set to "Y". In this case the system will only look for a
    ! patron's Barcode and not for his System ID.
    ! This value can also be used for retrieving a Z303 record in the
    ! SIP2 server. This option can be activated in tab_sip2.conf by
    ! match_id_type = auto;
