    Log message "Failed to generate paired fields for 880s" after regen or upgrade

    • Product: Voyager
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local, TotalCare

    Problem Symptoms

    After regen or upgrade, log shows: Failed to generate paired fields for 880s - bibid = {bib_id}


    An 880 pair in the record does not conform to MARC standard.


    This message is informative rather than an indication that the record must be updated. If cataloging practices allow unpaired 880 fields, these messages may appear. Operators can examine the records associated with the logged bib_id numbers and see if any cataloging changes should be made according to local practices.
