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

    • 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.


    Behavior is by design in Voyager 8.0.0 through Voyager 9.1.1.


    Voyager 9.2.0 introduced 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).  See also: Adding MARC field in Voyager Global Data Change places new field at the end of the record


    Prior to Voyager 9.2.0, no MARC field ordering was available 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.
