    Correcting errors in call numbers of imported items

     

    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care

     

    Description:
    We have a library that has a few items that have call numbers with a cursive L. These cursive L's were being imported incorrectly and show has squares or a black diamond with a question mark. We have corrected the import issue and they import correctly now. However we need to correct the ones already in the system

     

    Resolution:
    The items are linked to the HOL record, which also has the incorrect character in field 852$$i. 
    The way to correct all the items is to correct the HOL record using p-manage-21 (Global changes).
    The call number in all items linked to the HOL record will be also corrected, if X852-ITEM-OVERRIDE in tab100 is set to Y. The prerequisite for this change is switch X852-ITEM-OVERRIDE in tab100 that must be set to Y in both xxx50 and xxx60 libraries. 
    When running p-manage-21, just copy and paste the call number, including the special characters, to the fields "Replace this Text" / "With this Text". 
    p-manage-21 can read special characters.
