    p_ret_01: including 852 field from Holdings record

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

    We'd like to retrieve BIB numbers for records that don't have an 852 subfield b of DOCS (which is in the Holdings). Is there a way to add an expand/merge routine to add the 852 to a p-ret-01 in the Bib library?

    You need to (temporarily) add the following line to your abc01 tab_expand:
    RET expand_doc_bib_hol_usm

    This will (virtually) add all the fields from the HOL record to the BIB record it is working with.

    We suggest that after running this p_ret_01 you comment out the above line: if a particular p_ret_01 run does not need fields from the HOL record, its inclusion will unnecessarily slow down the p_ret_01 run.
