    Preventing renewal of overdue items

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

    Description:
    We had someone renew overdue items today. I thought I had that disabled. Looking over tab_block_circ:

    ABC50 51 ##### 01 999999.99
    ABC50 54 ##### 01 250.00
    ABC50 57 ##### 01 10.00
    ABC50 58 ##### 01 10.00
    ABC50 ## ##### 01 150.00
    !ABC50 ## ##### 05 04 10000

    Column four is blank. Would I need to make it 00 to stop online renewals of overdues or am I reading the manual wrong?

    Resolution:
    If you want 1 overdue to block the loan, you would specify "01" tab_block_circ, col. 4*.

    To make this be used, you need to have check_circ_9_a and/or check_circ_9_b specified for the Renew labels in tab_check_circ:

    RENEW-GBL check_circ_9_a
    RENEW-GBL check_circ_9_b
    RENEW check_circ_9_a
    RENEW check_circ_9_b
    RENEW-WWW check_circ_9_a
    RENEW-WWW check_circ_9_b
    RENEW-W-G check_circ_9_a
    RENEW-W-G check_circ_9_b
    X-RNW check_circ_9_a
    X-RNW check_circ_9_b

    Note: Since you have "#####" as the sublibrary in col. 3, check_circ_9_a and check_circ_9_b will have the same effect. You can specify one or the other; don't need to specify both....

    Then restart the pc_server and/or the www_server.

    *Internal Note: In the check_circ_tab_block_item program: IF NO-OVERDUE NOT < TAB-BLOCK-NO-OVERDUE (1) [then block due to overdues]
