We are receiving records from Marcive to update our Authorities library. In the test batch of records, we sent them a list of bib records and received back from them 76 bib replacements and many authority records, some replacements, others new. I've determined how to load each set using p_manage_36 and p_manage_18.
I'm still a bit confused about the relationship between these loaded records and how they are flagged by ue_08 for further indexing. What does ue_08 look for when it adds records to ABC01 for reindexing.
Also, KB 8192-100599 mentions getting rid of z07 records with a given sequence. Would it not be just as easy to remove all z07's if they are all added by ue_08? Or is the concern that some may be valid, recent ones might be included in the mix?
ue_08 processes the Z01 records which have a z01_rec_key_4 of "-NEW-...". z01_rec_key_4 is set to "-NEW-..." by one of three processes:
(1) loading of a bib record which contains a heading for which there is no existing Z01;
(2) update by ue_11, which changes the z01_rec_key_4 of an existing z01 to "-NEW-..." -- in order to cause it to be reprocessed by ue_08. (The latter -- update by ue_11 -- would be the result of new/updated authority records.)
(3) ue_08 itself, when it is started with the CHECK-OPTION "N" or "R" rather than the normal "C".
There could always be some valid, recent z07's. As described in KB 8192-100599, these can be identified by their back-dating to a z01_sequence "199n...". You should limit the delete to the "2007..." z01_sequence's, created by ue_08.
