    After adding 856 field, subfield u incorrectly displays in OPAC

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.2.0

    Problem Symptoms:
    ?€¢ After adding 856 fields in GDC, both z and u subfields show in OPAC, together as the active link text.
    ?€¢ After resaving record in Cataloging, u subfield no longer shows in OPAC; z subfield is active link text.

    Cause:
    Rule is adding subfield z as text embedded in subfield u; subfields must be added separately to the records.

    Resolution:
    Scenario: Existing data change rule set contains following parameters for consequence:
    Add MARC Subfield
    Field: 856
    Indicator 1: 4
    Indicator 2: 0
    Subfield: u
    Value: http://<URL> ?€¡z <Public Note text>
    Subfield z should be added as its own subfield rather than embedded in the u subfield.
    1. Edit existing consequence:
    Add MARC Subfield
    Field: 856
    Indicator 1: 4
    Indicator 2: 0
    Subfield: u
    Value: http://<URL>
    2. Add a second consequence to same rule set:
    Add MARC Subfield
    Field: 856
    Indicator 1: 4
    Indicator 2: 0
    Subfield: z
    Value: <Public Note text>
    3. Save rule set.
