    Implement Location Sort Order for Voyager VPRIMO

    • Product: Primo, Voyager
    • Product Version: Voyager 9 + Primo 4.8 (and all later versions)

    Question

    How to implement Primo extract's Location Sort Order feature, introduced in Voyager 9.0.0?

    Answer

    1. Decide which locations to sort and in what order.
    2. Update PrimoExp-Publishing.ini and PrimoExp-Selective.ini with the location codes and order of locations in the [LocationSortOrder] stanza. Be sure ordering matches in both files.
    3. Re-extract database so all records now have applicable location sort numbering by running Selective extract. (See How to run Selective extract)
    4. Schedule a pipe process in Primo to collect the extracted records & update Primo.

    Additional Information

    Locations not specified in LocationSortOrder will appear after sorted locations in alphabetical order.

    For example, if PrimoExp-Selective.ini contains location codes in this order:
    1=main
    2=reference

    and a bibliographic record contains holdings at main, reference, biology and agriculture locations, the holdings will appear in the order

    main
    reference
    agriculture
    biology
