    Defect Status

    Issue 16384-19137 / VYG-1111 is resolved for Voyager 8.2.0 and higher.


    Use Multiple MFHDs bulk import profile.

    Additional Information

    Replication steps:

    1. In Sysadmin, create a Bulk Import Rule that is set to use a bib duplicate detection profile set to Add Unconditional. On the Profiles tab, under Single MFHD select Bib, MFHDs, POs (or Bib, MFHDs, POs, Items).
    2. Fill in the Single button with a dummy field, such as 999x (please note that I also tested with data found in the 999x that mapped to info in the Mapping tab, and the same thing happened).
    3. In the Mapping tab, have a the default mapping with (*in the MARC Item and MARC Loc fields) and map to a Location that resides in the Acq Policy Def for the PO that will be created (I used the Main location in my testing).
    4. Fill in the Orders information, make sure that the Order Location includes the Location you entered in the Mapping tab (I used the Acquisitions Desk).
    5. Select a correct default Fund Code and Fiscal Period.
    6. Run bulkimport using the Bulk Import Rule.
    7. In the import log (log.imp.yyyymmdd.hhmm in the /rpt) will get
    "Missing main field type configuration for creating MFHD
    Invalid purchase order parameters"
