    rep_tab_short doesn'tcontrol print_08 format dropdown

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 16.02

    We want to create a Serials Solutions output list of our physical periodical titles
    and holdings, and the p_print_08 output looks just like what I'd like, because I
    need 022, title, start date, end date, catalog URL in that order in a spreadsheet

    It looks like the correct format (022, 245, 866) are part of our option 5 when I
    look at the rep_tab_short table, although only options 1-3 show the same way in the
    print_08 dropdown as in the table. Options 4 and 5 show in the dropdown as "For ADM
    records: System number | Link"

    The ./xxx01/tab/rep_tab_short.eng controls the format of the printing -- that is, if you select "003", rep_tab_short.eng Format Number 003 will be used and the fields which print *will* be those in Format Number 003.

    But the formats which display in the p_print_08 dropdown are coded into the ./pc_b_eng/p-print-08.xml file, for example:

    <display>Author | Title | Imprint | Pages</display>

    If you want the text you see in the dropdown to correspond to the fields specified in rep_tab_short.eng, then when you make a change to rep_tab_short.eng, you will need to make a corresponding change to ./pc_b_eng/p-print-08.xml .
