    CAT: Cannot open a locally saved record in Cataloging

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

    Problem Symptoms:
    * A record saved locally using the Cataloging module cannot be reopened in Cataloging.
    * Attempting to open the record produces the error: "The record character encoding does not match the import format: record skipped."

    The setting for "Expected Character Set of Imported Records" in Cataloging must be set to "MARC-21 UTF-8" for records previously saved in Cataloging to be successfully opened.

    1. Open Cataloging > Options > Preferences > Mapping tab
    2. Change the setting for "Expected Character Set of Imported Records" to "MARC-21 UTF-8."
    3. Attempt to open the previously saved record.
