In the course of upgrading from one version to another, you find that the z52 (used to produce the UTIL-G-2 display) doesn't exist.
So you use UTIL-G-3 to create it.
Why did this happen?
The UTIL-G-3 should really only be used with a brand-new library. You should get the z52 from the old version and load it. Or, you can do UTIL-G-3 and then use the UTIL-G-2 update to give it the same values that you see in the old version..
The following UTIL-G-2 parameters should never be zero or blank (after initial installation):.
* last-doc-number (in all libraries with a z00 table; must be equal to or higher than the highest z00_doc_number).
* max-z02-count (in libraries which have Browse indexes; a value of "0" will cause browses to all show as "1+" instead of having the number of titles; the standard value is "50").
* last-bor-id (in $usr_library only; must be equal to or higher than the highest user-key/z303_rec_key).
* last-loan-number (in ADM library; must be equal to or higher than the highest z36_number or z36h_number -- whichever is higher).
* last-barcode-number (in ADM library; if you let the system assign *item* barcode numbers).
* last-order-number and last-order-no-xxxx (in ADM library; must be equal to or higher than the highest z68_order_number; not used if acq.ini has "PrefixString=DocNo").
* last-cash-transfer (in ADM library; if you export cash records).
These UTIL-G-2 display parameters can be zero:.
* session-id (in vir01 only; used by www_server; set to zero by clear_vir01).
* last-file-number (in vir01 only; used by z39_gate; set to zero by clear_vir01).
* last-z34-sequence (in $pw_library only; set to zero by UTIL-A-13).
* library-lock-status ("0" indicates unlocked; must exist in every library).
* change-file-name (must exist in every library doing global changes).
These parameters can be zero only if you are planning to re-index:
Note: The preceding lists do not include all parameters in each category. They include ones which Ex Libris Support has encountered problems with.
