    webv:Repeated Library name in Titles list after remote search

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.1.1

    Bug Report Form for Issue 16384-7202
    Module(s): WebVoyage
    Server platform(s) affected: Solaris
    Browser & version (if applicable): IE 7, FF2

    Release(s) replicated in: Voy 7.1.0
    Last version without bug (if applicable): 6.5.4

    Expected results:
    Titles list after remote search should show the database name once per title.

    Actual results:
    Titles list after remote search displays the database 3 times per title.

    Workflow implications: The database name pulls from two different places (SysAdmin and, thus making the results confusing to patrons.

    Replication steps:
    1. On the basic search page, select Change next to database name.
    2. Select at least one remote database to search.
    3. Perform search.
    4. Results list will display Database name 3 times in addition to the columns selected for the search results in SysAdmin. For example, where the results are set to display Full Title, Author and Format, a title in the Remote Search results displays:
    Full Title
    Database NAME as entered in SysAdmin>Search>Database Definitions>Name
    Bib Format (doesn’t always work: see related issue 16384-7153)
    Call number, Database NAME set in
    item status, Locaton
    Database NAME set in

    Other information: The above happens even when displaying a result from the local database in the case of a Simul Search. Performing the same search in the local database only displays the following in results:
    Full Title
    Bib Format
    Call Number
    Item Status, Location

    Fixed in Circulation and OPAC for 8.1.1.
