    p_cir_08 renews books for patrons whose z304_expiry_date has passed

    We are planning to run p_circ_08 to automatically renew books for faculty. We do not want to renew books for faculty whose records are expired (z305_expiry_date<20081204).

    I understand that the parameters p_cir_08 are established in tab_check_circ. If I run the service with 1_c_a INACTIVE in p_circ_08 there is output but it includes faculty whose records have expired. If I run the service with 1_c_a ACTIVE in p_cir_08, there is no output at all. What are the required parameters for p_cir_08?

    The b_cir_08_b program calls check_circ, looking for the B-CIR-08 lines.

    I saw that the "B-CIR-08 check_circ_1_c_a" line in the xxx50 tab_check_circ was commented out.

    The site uncommented this and ran the job but got no output because of this error, seen in the job log:

    Load error : file 'heck_circ_1_c_a'
    error code: 173, pc=0, call=61, seg=0
    173 Called program file not found in drive/directory

    This occurred because the "check_circ_1_a" needed to be one position to the right in the "B-CIR-08" line.

    When this was corrected, the job ran successfully and books were not renewed for expired faculty.
