    Add MARC Field appends new fields to end of record, regardless of tag

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.0.0 - 9.1.1
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care

     

    Problem Symptoms

    Data change to Add MARC Field results in field appended to end of record, rather than in appropriate order within record.

    Cause

    Behavior is by design in Voyager 8.0.0 through Voyager 9.1.1.

    Resolution

    Voyager 9.2.0 introduces MARC Field Ordering for Cataloging and Global Data Change (GDC), which allows sites to customize and configure MARC tag ordering when a record is saved (in Cataloging) or processed by a Data Change Job (in GDC).

     

    Prior to Voyager 9.2.0, no field reordering was applied to records in GDC, so when new tags are added to a record by a Data Change Job, the new fields are appended to the end of the record.
