    Union View doesn't work: each copy displays as separate entry *MASTER*

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

    Description:
    Despite having Union View configured, each copy displays as a separate entry in the Web Brief List -- rather than a *single* result with each copy in the Full bib as a "Library Holding".

    Resolution:
    In order for Union View to work: :

    * you need to have UNION-LIBRARY=1 in the xxx01 tab100

    * the z120 and z127 need to be built {you can check by doing select count(*) from z127}

    * you need to be using the U-xxxxxx base you have set up in tab_base. To assure that U-xxxxxx is being used, add "&local_base=U-xxxxx" to the http://... URL at the top of the OPAC screen and press Enter.

    If these seem OK, do util f/4 for the z127 for each of the records in the set (to confirm that they are pointing to the same, single preferred record).

    See "How to Set Up and Configure Union View for Your OPAC" for more.
