From the documentation on v19 expand-doc-course:
CNO-6 is the period during which the course takes place. For example: Winter, Spring, and so on.
The values are stored in the CNO-6 field in the following format:
$$n<period>. n is a number from 1 to 7. For example:$$1Spring.
If the course is valid for more than one period, the field is filled with a series of values, each value in a separate subfield, with no spaces in between. For example:$$1Spring$$2Summer.
<end v19 documentation>
What we are seeing is that the display does not strip off the first value of the first subfield. Example:
Subsequent subfields look fine (meaning, they do not display the $$n value); just the first "1" is displaying.
The "1" which we are seeing is not first subfield code (that is, $$1), but rather the value of the $$8 subfield ("$$81") which precedes it in the CNO-6 field.
We can add a "-8" to column 6 in the abc30 edit_field.eng to prevent it from displaying:
! 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
1 # CNO-6 # -8
!2 # A ^
2 1 A ^
