    Analytics: E-inventory > Bib Details > Author field fields truncated at colon

    • Product: Alma
    • Product Version: Dec 2017 Release

     


    Description 

    Is there a bug in Analytics that truncates fields like E-inventory > Bib Details > Author in the results? 

    Even when shortened these fields are truncated at the colon.  (That is, it isn't a length issue.)  We've set this column to width 400 and it still truncates it for every "Author" at the colon. 

     

    Resolution 

    The field is not actually truncated at the colon.  The author fields in Alma are displayed in Alphabetical (then numerical) order in Analytics
