    Patron Barcode not appearing in some notices (v16)

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 16.02

    We run overdue-summary reports that show the patrons barcode but when we run the cash summary and the Lost Item Bill, patron barcodes do not appear.

    Is there a configuration that needs to be made/changed? I found KB RC 000924 but that seems to be for additional ids and also appears to be for the specific notices that are called out. Please advise.

    It is not possible to consistently display the "Barcode" field across all XSL forms; that is why this information does display in overdue-summary-0-01.xsl but not in lost-material-bill-m.xsl and cash-summary-00.xsl.

    Some background information on XSL style sheets that may be helpful to you in future configurations:

    Funcs.xsl calls funcs-address.xsl and is called by all three of these XSL forms.

    The barcode information comes from the patron-address function in funcs-address.xsl and it's called in the same way for each of these forms. The barcode comes from z308-key-data.

    If the field was suppressed using the *.trn TO-BLANK function, then the field would appear in the XML file although it would be empty.
