It seems there are "fix" and "merge" routines which do similar things. This is a bit confusing.
The tab_fix lines with "fix_doc_merge" as the program use the tab_merge table in the same way that the "MERGE" parameters (used in certain batch jobs) use it.
For instance, p_manage_18 has a "p_merge_type" parameter. Your ndu10_p_manage_18.00304 job has this line:
setenv p_merge_type "OCLC"
This means that the following line from ndu10 tab_merge will be used:
OCLC merge_doc_overlay 01
The same thing could be accomplished by specifying "OCLC" as the "p_fix_type" and then having the following line in tab_fix:
OCLC fix_doc_merge OCLC
The "p_merge_type" parameter was no doubt added to make this a 1-step process rather than a two.
