    print-03: "Info: Empty table .../tab/local-notes"

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21


    Why does the print-03 ("Download Machine-Readable Records") job end with status "Success" (as seen in the GUI Task Manager, Batch Log), with the output seeming OK, while the log file shows hundreds of lines of:

    Info: Empty table /exlibris/aleph/u21_1/xxx01/tab/local-notes ?


    The “ Info: Empty table …” message occurs when the program looks for the table and doesn’t find it. In this case, it is occurring because “HOLD” is being specified as the fix label in the submission of print-03 and the ./xxx01/tab/tab_fix has the following entry:

    HOLD fix_doc_create_hol_local_notes LOCAL-NOTES

    But there is no xxx01 table “local-notes”.

    Additional Information

    The following, from the distributed usm01 tab_fix, is an example of what the fix_doc_create_hol_local_notes entry *should* look like:

    HOLD fix_doc_create_hol_local_notes tab_fix_local_notes.conf

    The./usm01/tab/tab_fix_local_notes.conf contains the following:

    local notes = 590##,690##
    owners subfield = 9
    owners list = AA,BB,LIN
    merge section = 98
    mapping section = LCN-2-HOL
