    print-03 fails to extract item data for Bib records with many items

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23

    Problem Symptoms:
    print-03 ("Download machine-readable records") fails to extract all the item data for certain Bib records with many items attached.
       The $alephe_scratch/sys01_p_print_03.05342 contains the following message:
    docx_to_marc - Record no. 000615269 truncated after 100000 characters

    There are 803 items for the ADM record linked to this bib record 000615269. When the fields from these items are expanded into the output record by this sys01 tab_expand line:
    PRINT-OCLC expand_doc_bib_z30 TAG=930
    it causes the output record to exceed the maximum (of 100,000 bytes).

    1. Reduce the number of z30 fields specified in the sys01 expand_doc_bib_z30 to be included as subfields in the output 930 field. This will reduce the size of the output records.  OR

    2. Remove the following line from the sys01 tab_expand:
    PRINT-OCLC expand_doc_bib_z30
    This means that *no* items will be included in the output file, but at least you'll get all the Bib and HOL record information. The file-03 Service can be used to export (all of) the z30 records, producing sequential-format ./xxx50/files/ files, and then the z30's for the problem records can be extracted from the relevant z30_seq.aoutput file.
