    p_file_20; Z305 table

    We recently had a new ABC51 ADM installed.

    While working on building a new PLIF load for ABC51, I have noticed that while the Z305 table is missing.

    Can someone please advise if we should add this ourselves, or if Ex Libris should be involved.

    If you have an abc51 z305, the system will look in that table for a z305 with Z305-SUB-LIBRARY = 'ABC51'.

    But since the abc51 tab100 has USER-SHARING=Y, that means that, if there is no abc51 z305, the system will look in the $usr_library for a z305 with Z305-SUB-LIBRARY = 'ALEPH' and use that.

    When you create a Local Patron record, the system checks the xxx50 tab31, column 22 ("Automatically create ALEPH record") to see if a z305 (with the key "ALEPH" should be created (in the $usr_library).

    As described in KB 5830, the existence of the z305 in the ADM library is optional when USER-SHARING=Y, but since you will be running p_file_20 for the abc51 library, I think you should create the z305 table for abc51. You can do this by doing util a/17/1 in abc51. (Make sure you are in abc51 when you do this!)
