    BULK: Number of copies per line item not used for multi-item import

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.1.2

    Problem Symptoms:
    * Number of copies per line item on PO after BulkImport is equal to the number of items created for that record during bulk import, not default set in System Administration > Cataloging > Bulk Import Rules > Orders > Number of Copies per Line Item.

    Cause:
    This behavior is the result of Known Issue 16384-21105.

    Resolution:
    Fixed in Voyager 8.2.2.

    Additional Information

    Replication steps:
    1. In SysAdmin, create a bulk import rule with the following specifications:
    a. Profiles > Multiple MFHDs:
    i. Bibs, MFHDs, multiple Items, POs
    ii. Multiple ? > Create a MFHD for each location and group items with location under that MFHD
    Orders ? > Number of Copies per Line Item = 1
    b. Map other specifications specific to your records.
    2. Import a record that will create multiple items under a specific mfhd, i.e., a multi-volume set that will have, for example, 5 volumes, but will be ordered as a single copy of a line item.
    3. Review Purchase Order in Acquisitions.
    4. Note line item has X copies on order where X is the number of items created.

    Workaround:
    1. Set import to import bibs, mfhds, POs and manually add item records, OR
    2. Edit the line item on the purchase order in Detailed Line Item > Copies/Funds > Edit.
