    • Product: Voyager

    Problem Symptoms:
    * Heading with max number of characters has strange character inserted before pipe separating first 255 characters and last 45 characters of the heading (in position 4).

    This behavior is the result of VYG-4586.

    Issue VYG-4586 is not reproducible in Voyager 9.1.0.

    Additional Information

    Replication steps:
    1. In Cataloging, create bib with long heading. Do not create authority record for heading.
    2. Connect to server as voyager, and run catjob 3:
    cd /m1/voyager/xxxdb/sbin
    Pcatjob -j3
    {Enter dates that will capture record creation when prompted}
    3. Go to the /rpt and look at the catrprts.{LocCode}.inp and note character between pipes (in position 4) as in following example:

    2. Create authority record for heading.
    Option 2:
    Shorten the heading in the bib.
