    BULK: Records are not keyword indexed

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 9

    Problem Symptoms

    • After Bulk Importing records, cannot find with keyword search.
    • When viewing Titles Index containing imported records, Full Title, Author and Date are empty
    • Resaving record populates Titles Index fields
    • Import log (log.imp*) has message at end:

    On Voyager 9.0.0:
    WARNING: Keyword indexes are out of sync.

    Run the REGEN utility with the following options enabled:
    KEYWORD=Y
    TURBOBIBTEXT=Y
    MOVEDATAFILES=Y
    UPDATEVOYINI=Y


    On Voyager 9.1.0 and higher:
    ***********************************************************
    WARNING: Keyword indexes have not been updated. Records
    can be found with headings and left-anchored
    searches.

    To index for keyword searching, please run a
    keyword regen via the util menu or using
    the standard Cert 300 regen instructions.
    ***********************************************************

    Cause

    In Voyager 9.0.0 and higher, the BulkImport default is to import records without keyword indexing, unless otherwise specified (see Additional Information).

    Resolution

    A keyword regen will index the records. Open a Case with Voyager Support to request a regen during Support hours, or run a regen any time using the UTIL menu:

    1. On the Voyager server, open the UTIL menu for your xxxdb:
      1. dlib xxxdb
      2. util
    2. Type I for Index Maintenance option.
    3. Follow the prompts for Regenerate keyword files for xxxdb (option K).

    BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

    • A keyword regen puts your catalog into read-only mode. Searching can continue, but no records can be updated while the regen is in progress.
    • Circulation activity can continue uninterrupted during the keyword regen.

    See: UTIL Menu: Running a keyword regen

    Or, if the record set is relatively small and can be put into a GDC Record Set easily, a GDC Index Job can keyword index the imported records. See GDC: Purpose of GDC Reindexing job?

    Additional Information

    If you wish to have keyword indexing done at the time of the import:

    • In WebAdmin, check the box for "Generate Keyword Index? Default is no keyword index generated"
    • At the command line, add parameter: -KADDKEY
