    Unable to open serial items when there are 200 issues

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Our Serials staff cannot open all of the serial items for a serial BIB that has a prediction pattern, and ALEPH subscription; the error message is "failed to execute after 60 seconds."
    The volume has 251 issues but the pattern only opened through issue 137."
    What are we doing wrong?

    When you need to open a large number of serial issues, it would be better to use p_serial_13.

    Please do the following to correct this problem:

    1. Delete the 137 issues (out of the 251 total) for the volume in question that got created in the "5. Expected Schedule" tab in the lower pane when the Patterns Node is selected in the left pane.

    2. Create a BIB input file and run p_serial_13 as per the instructions in the help.

    3. Verify that all issues were opened.
