    corrected documentation for the HOL fix routine.

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 19.01

    According to the tab_fix header help, the HOL routine is "run automatically when a HOL record is created".
    This is not correct. The HOL routine in XXX60/tab/tab_fix is called only when the HOL record is created from the Items list > Tab 6. (HOL Links) > "Create New" button. It is called in addition to the INS routine.
    In all the other cases of HOL record creation, only the INS routine is called.

    Use the INS routine in Holdings library (XXX60) instead of HOL in XXX60/tab/tab_fix.
    This issue is still open and was escalated to Development for further investigation <2012-01-22 01:00:01>.
