    I need to delete two MARC record subfields: 586 y & 856 z

    I go to run Services-> Catalog Maintenance Procedures -> Global Changes (manual-21 ).

    Input tells me that I must furst run "Retrieve Catalog Records" function to get file.

    I run Retrieve Catalog Records (ret-01) with output file name, date range 1/1/2000 to 6/1/2008
    tag 856## subfield y . It runs for a long time.

    TAsk Manager Batch Log shows that it started, and ended 25 mins later. I lists the parameters that I
    included in the batch run. ie my file name.

    I do not see ANY file produced in my print directory.

    As stated in the p_ret_01 Help for the Output File parameter: "The file can be found later in the $alephe_scratch directory."
