    Single course repeated multiple times in OPAC "Full View of Record"

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

    Description:
    Can you say why the single course would be repeated 5 times in this OPAC "Full View of Record". (See attached.)

    Resolution:
    If you look at the usm30 edit_doc_999.eng, from which the abc30 CNO field structure was apparently copied, you will note that column 4 (the "Contents to filter in or filter out" for the subfield 8) is incremented with each set of 5 rows:

    ## CNO-2 8 1 D LCourse Y Z E W
    ## CNO-6 8 1 D Y E W
    ## CNON1 8 1 D Y E W
    ## CNON2 8 1 D Y E W
    ## CNON3 8 1 D Y E W
    !
    ## CNO-2 8 2 D LCourse Y Z E W
    ## CNO-6 8 2 D Y E W
    ## CNON1 8 2 D Y E W
    ## CNON2 8 2 D Y E W
    ## CNON3 8 2 D Y E W
    !
    ## CNO-2 8 3 D LCourse Y Z E W
    ## CNO-6 8 3 D Y E W
    ## CNON1 8 3 D Y E W
    ## CNON2 8 3 D Y E W
    ## CNON3 8 3 D Y E W

    The effect of this is to display the second, third, etc., course attached to this doc.

    In the abc30 edit_doc_999.eng, where all of these are "1", the first course is displayed repeatedly.
