Relink Holdings when an inventory is on loan

Question

I am trying to relink holding to another bibliographic record, using List of Holdings > Actions > Relink, but if an inventory is currently loaned, Alma produces an error "There are loans registered for this item. Please handle the loans before {0} this item." and does not allow relinking. How can I relink holding when connected inventory is on loan?

Answer

A preferred way for relinking holdings is Merge Records & Combine Inventory available in MD Editor: Tools > MARC Bibliographic > Merge Records & Combine Inventory. Please note that a merge routine should not be chosen in this case. Done in such way, relinking holdings is possible also for loaned inventory.
