    Converted hold requests don't show up in GUI patron tree "Hold Requests"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph

    Description:
    This is a problem with some converted item and patron records. The items, patrons, loans, etc., show up OK in the GUI, but the "Hold requests" link in the left-hand tree in the patron record display fails to show any holds even though there *is* a z37 hold request for this patron.

    Resolution:
    The program which is building the Loans, Cash, Hold Requests, etc., lists is pc_cir_c0460.cbl. It calls ./com/filter_buf_z37_hold.cbl which has the following logic:

    IF Z37-REQUEST-TYPE = "H" OR
    Z37-REQUEST-TYPE = "T"
    THEN
    CALL "io_buf_z37" USING
    TEMP-BUF-Z37-PTR
    "P"
    TEMP-BUF-Z37-NO-LINES
    BUF-Z37-LINE-X (1)
    BUF-Z37-RETURN-STATUS
    END-CALL
    END-IF

    So the Z37-REQUEST-TYPE needs to be H (hold) or T (title hold) in order for it to be included in this display.

    The z37_request_type in the abc50 z37 000009670-000010-0001 is blank/null. It should be "H".
