    p_print_03: "Existing 001 field for record ... is not a valid Aleph format"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 16.02

    When we run p_print_03 and the record already has an 001 field, we get the message: "Error. Existing 001 field for record XXXXXXXXX is not a valid Aleph format".

    Is there a way to force p_print_03 to do an 001 overwrite?

    You can have it execute a fix_doc_do_file_08 before the fix_doc_001_sysno. Like this:.

    EXPT fix_doc_do_file_08 delete_001.fix
    EXPT fix_doc_001_sysno

    Then you would have an abc01/tab/import/delete_001.fix file like this:.

    1 001## DELETE-FIELD

    Note: there is an indication that this doesn't work in certain versions. If not, you will need to do one of two things:

    1. Use the p_print_03 input file as input to the p_manage_37 "fix doc records" job, specifying a label in tab_fix which has the as the fix_doc_do_file_08 as the fix routine to execute. This will update the records in place, deleting the 001. Or

    2. Use the p_print_03 input file as input to the p_manage_21 global change, specifying 001 as a "Delete Field".

    In either case, be sure to specify the appropriate input file.

    Then you will be able to run p_print_03 with fix_doc_001_sysno OK.
