    p_manage_70 is missing BIB-TO-HOL option in 'Convert Type' drop-down

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

    Description:
    We have a list of bib system numbers that we need the corresponding holdings numbers for. We need the holdings numbers to do global changes on the 852 tag, subfields b and c.

    We are on v. 18 and do not have BIB-TO-HOL as an option in our 'Convert Type' drop-down. Can I add this option via some table?

    Resolution:
    The only options you can use are those specified in the dropdown. The pre-version-20 p_manage_70 includes the following options:

    ADM-TO-ITEM
    ADM-TO-ORDER
    BARCODE-TO-ITEM
    BIB-TO-ADM
    BIB-TO-ITEM
    BIB-TO-ORDER
    ITEM-TO-BIB
    ORDER-TO-BIB

    In version 20 the following are added:

    BIB-TO-HOL
    ITEM-TO-HOL
    BARCODE-TO-HOL
    HOL-TO-BIB
    HOL-TO-ITEM
    HOL-TO-BARCODE
    BARCODE-TO-BIB
    ADM-TO-BIB

    *Prior to version 20*, if you are using a certain xxx01 search to create the list of bib system numbers, you could instead run p_ret_01 in the *HOL* library, specifying:

    RET expand_doc_hol_bib [xxxxx]

    in the HOL tab_expand where "xxxxx" is the bib record field(s) you are searching on.

    The result will be a list of xxx60 system numbers which you can use as input to the xxx60 p_manage_21.
