    z36_letter_date updated, but overdue notice not produced

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

    Problem Symptoms:
    Overdue notices which should be produced by a job_list job are not produced, that is, they are not found in either the ./xxx50/print directory or in the print directory's save-yyyy-mm-dd subdirectories, but the z36_letter_date *has* been updated, indicating the production of a notice.

    The notice was produced but the output file it was in was overwritten by a subsequent overdue job (which ran before the notice could be processed by the print daemon).

    Make sure that the name of the print file for each overdue job is unique.

    Additional Information

    If a job_list job produces overdue notices which *are* seen in the ./xxx50/print files but are not actually printed, consult Article 000022101 ("save-yyyy-mm-dd subdirectories in ./xxx50/print directory").
