    For ALA Requests ILL No. is derived from Transaction ID, not Order No.

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 6.6.0


    • When processing a request as ALA Request, after Accept ALA Requests is chosen, the ILL Request number is assigned as the Transaction ID number rather than Order number.
    • Request cannot be easily found in database when item arrives with printed request form.
