    Records aren't matching when using Update previously loaded MFHDs and/or Items

    Question

    When importing records using Update previously loaded MFHDs and/or Items import rule, records don't always match and update even though there are records in the database. Why?

    Answer

    Update previously loaded MFHDs and/or Items has several requirements for successful match and update:

    The prerequisites for using this option are: 

    • A PO and line item must have been created for the bibliographic record, either with bulk import or manually 

    • A vendor reference number must be added to the PO line item in the Vendor Reference Number (see Figure 4-30), either with bulk import or manually 

    • A holdings (MFHD) record must have been created for the bibliographic record for the location of the to-be-updated item or MFHD, attached to the PO 

    from System Administration user's guide 

    All three prerequisites must be met in order for the records to match & be updated.
