    BULK: Wrong call number sometimes pulled with multiple hierarchies

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.2.2

    Problem Symptoms:
    * Import records with multiple call number fields & wrong field used in mfhd
    * Import rule contains Mapping with multiple call number hierarchies

    Cause:
    This behavior is the result of Issue VYG-5301.

    Resolution:
    Issue VYG-5301 is resolved for Voyager 9.1.0 and higher.

    Additional Information

    1. In SysAdmin, set up 2 call number hierarchies:
    -- Hierarchy 1: Call Number Type=Library of Congress
    * * 099 a b
    * * 090 a b
    * * 050 a b
    -- Hierarchy 2: Call Number Type=Dewey Decimal
    * * 099 a b
    * * 092 a b
    2. Create a bulk import rule that
    -- Creates bibs & mfhds
    -- Contains both call number hierarchies in Mapping
    -- Will match Hierarchy 1 with the incoming record. For attached record, use
    PBBA / {Voyager item} / PBBA / {Voyager Loc} / Hierarchy 1
    PBBK / {Voyager item} / PBBK / {Voyager Loc} / Hierarchy 2
    * / {Voyager item} / * / {Voyager Loc} / Hierarchy 1
    and use 049 |a as Location field & item type field.
    3. Import 4th record in attached file.
    4. View resulting records in Cataloging. Note that while the incoming bib record contains PBBA in the loc & item type field/subfield, which matches to the first mapping line & should use Hierarchy 1 (050 field), the mfhd call number is from Hierarchy 2 (092 field).
