    Wrong 852 copied into mfhd during BulkImport

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 7.1.1

    Problem Symptoms:
    * Using bi-directional merge or merge to add 852 to bib records
    * Existing 852 field copied to new mfhd, instead of new 852 field.

    Cause:
    BulkImport will use the first 852 field it finds in the bib record, regardless of whether it was in the record originally or was added during an import process.

    Resolution:
    This is working as designed. In the log.imp* file, you will note the following is logged:
    "Multiple 852 fields found in bibliographic record - only first one is used while creating MFHD."

    If all records will have mfhd in same location:
    1. Uncheck "Copy 852-855, 863-878 Fields from Bib to MFHD" in System Administration > Cataloging > Bulk Import Rules > Rules.
    2. Specify Location field/subfield in Rules tab.
    3. Set default line to map to same location and call number hierarchy for all values in the Mapping tab.
