    Selfchk:ESIP: Create Bib Record request (message 81) don't have 004 in MFHD

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.2.1


    MFHD records created using the ESIP Create Bib Record request (message 81) do not include MARC 004 fields (Voyager BIB ID for the related Bib record)

    Defect Status

    Issue 16384-12145 is resolved for Voyager 8.2.1 and higher.

    Replication Steps

    1. Be sure that the Enhanced flag is set to Y in the SelfCheck System Status (99) message.
    2. Send a Create Bib Record Request (81)
    3. No 004 will be in the mfhd.


    Impacted records can be identified using Global Data Change (GDC):

    1. Use GDC to run a Scan Job on the database. You will need 2 rules in 1 Scan Rule Set:
      1. Rule 1
        1. Condition: MARC Control Field Exists: Field 001 
        2. Consequence: Include
      2. Rule 2
        1. Condition: MARC Control Field Exists: Field 004 
        2. Consequence: Exclude
    2. Run the job on all MFHDS in the entire database to capture all impacted records.

    To repair the records:

    1. In Cataloging, open impacted MFHD record.
    2. Record > Re-link holdings to bibliographic ...
    3. Enter bib_id for same bib_record
    4. Click OK - generates 004 for correct bib in mfhd
