    Bursar refunds do not transfer if bib/mfhd/item deleted

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.0.0

    Problem Symptoms:
    * Bursar refunds do not transfer if the bib,mfhd, and items have been deleted that had the original fine.

    Behavior is caused by Issue 18568.

    Fixed in Voyager 8.2.1

    The system may not have all the information for the SIF file entry (e.g. item barcode, title) if the item is deleted.

    Bursar transfer is also now able to add some entries to SIF without error; you may see some older entries in the bursar SIF that were not previously picked up by the job due to this issue the first time you run it after upgrading.

    Pbursar -c/m1/voyager/v61db/sbin/bursar.cfg
    Test record: you can see the 31.00 transfer.
