    Words not included in WAU and WPE indexes

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

    Description:
    (1) Record 1240189 contains:
    1001 $$a Bruckner, Anton
    24510 $$a S?mtliche Werke, Kritische Gesamtausgabe /

    (2) This is the line in tab11_word:
    100## -fgjklnptu68 01 WRD WAU WPE

    (3)
    - CCL search -- wau=Bruckner, Anton -- retrieves 83 records, but title "S?mtliche Werke.." not among them.

    Resolution:
    util f/1/28 ("Display Word Indexing for a Single Record") showed that this 100 tag was indexed only in the W-001 (WRD) -- and not the W-003 (WAU) or W-012 (WPE):

    1001 $$aBruckner, Anton,$$d1824-1896.

    The problem was the single space between the WAU and the WPE. Columns 9, 10, 11, 12, etc., in tab11_word are each five bytes. If an index code is just three bytes, it needs to have *two* spaces separating it from the next code:

    100## -fgjklnptu68 01 WRD WAU WPE

    The addition of the extra space corrected the problem.
