    Description:
    How is mfhd 866 subfield 8 populated when serials collapsed in Acquisitions?

    Resolution:
    When issues from a predictive component pattern are collapsed, the 863 subfield 8 is the PATTERN_ID from the PATTERN table followed by the highest collapsed ISSUE_ID from the ISSUES_RECEIVED table for the component.
    Example:
    Predictive component PATTERN_ID: 171
    Collapse issues 1-4, ISSUE_IDs of 10-40
    Resulting field: 863 |8 71.40

    Non-predictive component do not have patterns so use 0 instead of a PATTERN_ID, and a separate 866 will be created for each issue.
