    Description:
    What merge routine should we specify in tab_merge for OCLC?

    Resolution:
    The distributed ./usm01/tab/tab_merge specifies tab_merge_adv_overlay routine 05 as the routine for OCLC..
    tab_merge_adv_overlay gets into unnecessary complications for the oclc_server. We suggest instead that you specify this in tab_merge:.
    OCLC merge_doc_overlay 09
    And then something like this in tab_merge_overlay:
    09 2 Y #####
    09 1 N #####
    09 1 Y OWN##
    09 1 Y 0359#

    You can add any other tags you want to preserve in the existing record as.

    09 1 Y nnnnn

    lines.
