    What field does the p_cir_11 sort option "LOCATION" sort by?

    One of my users is trying to run p_cir_11 and use the sort option of LOCATION. We do not see what order it is sorting the report by. Does that sorting option need to be defined in a table somewhere?

    The possible values for the p_cir_11 sort are:

    ID ADM Record Number
    02 Title
    05 Location
    NM Patron Name
    DA Request Date

    The "02" and "05" are tab_sort sort key values.

    "02" is, in fact, a title sort in the distributed usm01 tab_sort.
    "05" may at one time have been a "Location" (call number) sort but the usm01 tab_sort currently has:

    04 22 050## LOC## hjl 00 0
    05 11 440## av 2 00 0

    The "440" tag is not a call number field. The LOC and 050 (for sort type 04) *are* call number fields

    In this case, changing the p-cir-11.xml from:



    <display>Call number</display>

    will correct the problem. You need to make sure that your p-cir-11.xml is in synch with your tab_sort.

    [Note: In v17-up, you will need to do this if you want to change p-cir-11.xml:

    cp $aleph_root/pc_b_eng/p-cir-11.xml $alephe_root/pc_b_eng/p-cir-11.xml

    and then make the change to the $alephe_root/pc_b_eng/p-cir-11.xml .]
