    tab16 column 27 "3" doesn't adjust due hour after closing time to next open day

    Sublibrary ABRES is finding that for item status 40 (4 hour loan) that the loan is being set at closing time of same day and ignoring the value set in column 27 of tab16.

    Tab16 has a value of 3 in column 27 ( Adjust a due hour which is after closing time to the NEXT open day's opening hour)

    Line from tab16:
    ABRIG 40 ## ## + 00000000 00 + 0400 0100 04800 002 000 1 + 00000000 + 0000 000 000 00 10.00 000 3 01

    Attached is an example of an item checked out at 4:25 pm which received a due date of 4:30 pm – same day closing time.

    I reviewed the values in tab_sub_library.eng, tab15.eng, tab16 and tab17 and don’t see anything wrong with the setup.

    [From site:]

    When ABRES added in specific tab16 lines for each borrower status (not using ## for borrower status) they received the correct time for the loan.

    So the problem can be restated: when a wildcard is used for the borrower status, the value 3 in column 27 of tab16 is being ignored.

    As a work around we can add lines for the specific patron statuses when we have a 3 in column 27.
