    ANA: Reports using Title_Details return no data if BIB_FORMAT_DISPLAY is empty

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 9

    Symptoms

    * Reports using Title_Details return no data though matching data is in database
    * Database does not have Titles List Material Type Display populated in SysAdmin

    Defect Status

    Issue VYG-6562 is resolved for Voyager 9.2.0 and higher.

    Replication Steps

    1. In SysAdmin > Search > Titles List Material Type Display, there are no values.
    2. In Analyzer > Voyager 9.0.0 - Circulation and Call Slip or Voyager 9.1.0 - Circulation and Call Slip > xxxdb, run the Hot Titles report. This report uses Title_Details.
    3. Select dates for which the database has transaction data in CIRC_TRANSACTIONS and/or CIRC_TRANS_ARCHIVE.
    4. No data populates report.
    5. Add several values in SysAdmin > Search > Titles List Material Type Display that match values for bibs in the database associated with transactions in the date range.
    6. Return to Analyzer and re-run the report. Note that data is now populating report.

    Workaround

    Add material type values to SysAdmin > Search > Titles List Material Type Display.
    These values are 2-character values corresponding to the bibliographic record's LDR bytes 06 and 07, along with whatever display name is desired for this type of material.
    Examples:
    am / book
    gm / videorecording
    as / serial
