    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.1.2

    Description:
    Issue number: 16384-18977
    Module: Cataloging and Acquisitions
    Server platform affected: N/A
    PC OS: All
    Browser & version: N/A

    Releases replicated in: 8.1.2

    Expected results: Users should be able to use Cataloging in Acquisitions in order to be able to view related data from one client in the other.

    Actual results: When using Cataloging in Acquisitions or Acquisitions in Cataloging, users get the following error message: “An error occurred while trying to display the line item in Acquisitions” or the abbreviated Acquisitions MARC form opens, instead of opening in Cataloging.

    Workflow implications: Operators’ workflows are inhibited.

    Replication steps:
    Log into Cataloging; find a bib that is linked to a line item. From the Record menu, choose “View Line Items in Acquisitions.” An error message appears: “An error occurred while trying to display the line item in Acquisitions.”

    Log into Acquisitions; pull up a purchase order. Highlight a line item and choose an option that links to Cataloging, such as “MARC…”, “Detailed Line Item > MARC…”, etc. The abbreviated Acquisitions MARC form opens, instead of opening in Cataloging.

    Workaround: None.

    Resolution:
    Fixed with new 8.1.2 clients.



    If you downloaded 8.1.2 clients prior to 8/14/12 and are experiencing this issue, new clients with the fix for this issue are available in the Documentation Center.
