    extra periods in holdings display

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

    In the opac, in the full-xxx-body holdings view extra periods are appearing in the 1XX and 2XX fields that don't appear in the full view of record. For example
    Crider, Albert Foster, 1873-:
    Cement and Portland cement materials of Mississippi /by Albert F. Crider..
    [Miss.] : Mississippi State Geological Survey, 1907.
    73 p., [6] leaves of plates : ill. ; 23 cm..

    How is this corrected?

    Format 012 in xxx01/tab/edit_doc.eng is used by the system for display of bibliographic information in the OPAC list of items display. If edit_doc.eng has:
    012 ## ## 013

    you need to go to xxx01/tab/edit_paragraph.eng and find all the lines which have Paragraph identifier 13, e.g.:
    "013 245## 9 ## ."
    Col. 5 is suffix. If you don' t need any suffix, remove "." from col. 5 and restart web server.
