    p_course_03: Items not removed from Reserve; "Course not active since" parameter

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

    Description:
    When running course_03, we are finding that many items that should be reported in the output files are not reported. Furthermore, of the items reported, only a fraction have been restored with the original item data.

    Question: If the courses whose items we want to take off of Reserve have a To-date of "20091211", can we specify "20091211" as the "Course not active since" date in the p_course_03 submission?

    Resolution:
    The b_course_03_a program has this logic:

    IF Z108-DATE-TO < P-SINCE-DATE
    THEN
    MOVE "Y" TO SW-FILTERED
    END-IF

    That is, in order to be considered a filtered date, the z108_date_to needs to be *less than* the p_since_date. If the z108_date_to is greater than or equal to the p_since_date the course will not be included.

    Since the courses in question have a z108_date_to of '20091211', it seems to me that the "Course not active since" date should be '20091212'.
