    ISSN not matching when hyphen missing in EDI data

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: All
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct; Direct; Local; Total Care


    A vendor is sending the ISSN without a hyphen, and Voyager will not match unless we insert one in the EDI data. Is there a setting we can change so that it will match without a hyphen?


    The way ISSNs are normalized in Voyager means that they must be formatted with a hyphen or space to find a match. An ISSN can be matched if it's formatted
