    Patron with System Number "000000000"

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

    Problem Symptoms:
    GUI-created patron was given a system ID of "000000000". ID should be of the form "ID-nnnnn", which
    is what is specified in the xxx50 util g/2 last-bor-id counter.

    Cause:
    Uncertain, but probably because the operator accidentally typed- or pasted-in the "000000000".

    Resolution:
    * Make note of the patron's ID's and other information in GUI Circ;
    * Delete/recreate patron

    Additional Information

    The normal thing is for the operator to leave the Patron ID field blank and let the system assign the ID, but the system does *not* enforce this and *does* allow the operator type or paste something in.
