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

    • Article Type: General

    Problem Symptoms:
    print-03 ("Download machine-readable records") fails to extract all the item data for certain Bib records with many items


    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. OR

    2. Remove the following line from the sys01 tab_expand:

    PRINT-OCLC expand_doc_bib_z30

    The file-03 Service can then be used to export (all of) the z30 records, and then the z30's for the problem records could be

    extracted from its output file. OR

    3. Use the file-03 Service (for the z30) to extract the items instead of print-03.
