    Workaround

    Option 1: Use Cataloging and Pick and Scan to update/create item records.

    Option 2: Manually update flag in Cataloging.

    Option 3: Use Pick and Scan to update Magnetic media & Sensitize flags for impacted item records:

    1. Identify two lists of item_id numbers: one where sensitize is impacted and another where magnetic_media is impacted.

    select item_id
    from item
    where sensitize='1';


    and

    select item_id
    from item
    where magnetic_media='1';

    1. Use Pick and Scan to set Sensitize or Magnetic Media flag to Yes in Changes to Make tab, as appropriate.
    2. Select list of item_id numbers for the corresponding flag in Records to Change and Update Database.
