    CNO-6 lacks "$$1" before first period

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Description:
    For a lot of our records, the CNO-6 is not properly made :

    We see this :
    CNO-6 L $$81Winter$$1NA

    Instead of this :
    CNO-6 L $$81$$1Winter$$2NA

    If we update the course record in aleph, then the CNO-6 is alright. But is there a way to update this in batch?

    Resolution:
    The CNO-6 is being generated from the z108_period field....

    abc50@ALEPH20> select Z108_PERIOD, count(*) from z108 group by Z108_PERIOD;

    Z108_PERIOD COUNT(*)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    $$1Fall 67
    $$1Fall$$2NA 218
    $$1Fall$$2Summer 1
    $$1Fall$$2Winter 9
    $$1Fall$$2Winter$$3Spring 1
    $$1Fall$$2Winter$$3Spring$$4Summer 1
    $$1Fall$$2Winter$$3Summer 2
    $$1Fall$$2Yearly 1
    $$1Fall$$2Yearly$$3NA 2
    $$1NA 1
    $$1Summer 5
    $$1Summer$$2Fall 1
    $$1Summer$$2Fall$$3NA 1
    $$1Summer$$2NA 18
    $$1Winter$$2Fall 2
    $$1Winter$$2Fall$$3NA 15
    $$1Winter$$2Fall$$3Yearly 1
    $$1Winter$$2NA 156
    $$1Winter$$2Spring$$3NA 1
    $$1Winter$$2Summer$$3Fall 3
    $$1Winter$$2Summer$$3NA 1
    $$1Winter$$2Yearly 1
    $$1Winter$$2Yearly$$3NA 1
    $$1Yearly 31
    $$1Yearly$$2NA 1
    Fall Winter$$1NA 6
    Fall$$1NA 22
    Summer$$1NA 1
    Winter Fall$$1NA 1
    Winter Summer$$1NA 1
    Winter$$1NA 86
    Yearly$$1NA 1

    There is no way I can see to update these via SQL -- since we would not only need to insert the $$1 at the beginning, but also change the existing $$1 to $$2.

    You can generate a list of the 118 courses which lack the initial $$1 with the following SQL:

    SQL> select z108_rec_key from z108 where z108_period not like '$$%';

    I suggest that staff take the output from this query and update each course in the GUI.
