    print-03: embedded item data omitted in MARC output

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    Running print-03 ("Download Machine-Readable Records") to export records in MARC Communications Format: item data (from expand_doc_bib_z30) or OWN-field is omitted.

    The "MARC" output format includes only numeric tags.

    Specify "MARC with alphanumeric tags" as the Format (rather than "MARC").

    Additional Information

    If the vendor the file is being sent to doesn't accept non-numeric tags, the solution is to add a fix routine that changes the Z30 tagging to a numeric field, such as 930. See Article 000001766 ("How to change Z30 tags to numeric tags to send to vendors accepting only numeric").
