    Course Reserve document added but not attached to course

    Description:
    How many items may be attached to a course? The reason for the question is as follows:

    In the Course Reading Management online module (course reserves ), a staffer
    successfully added a document to an instructor's course. The system returned a
    message saying the document was added. However, after refreshing and even restarting
    the server, the document title does not appear in the document list for that course.
    Is there a limit to how many documents can be attached?

    document's barcode: 32815007719084
    Course Code is: PEP442.01

    The item does appear in the C.R. web OPAC, although the course and instructor fields are blank.

    Resolution:
    Item barcode 32815007719084 = z30_rec_key 000344646-000010:

    SQL> select z30_rec_key from z30 where z30_barcode = '32815007719084';

    Z30_REC_KEY
    ---------------
    000344646000010


    util f/3/12 shows that this item is linked to abc30 doc 417:

    ENTER HOME LIBRARY : bro50
    ENTER DOC-NUMBER : 000344646
    ABC01 000344646
    ABC30 000000417
    END

    We see that there are 53 docs linked to the course PEP442.01:

    SQL> select count(*) from z11 where z11_text = '$$aPEP442.01';

    COUNT(*)
    ----------
    53

    but this doc is not one of them:

    SQL> select count(*) from z11 where z11_text = '$$aPEP442.01' and z11_doc_number = '000000417';

    COUNT(*)
    ----------
    0


    The number of docs which can be linked to a course is in the hundreds ... certainly not 53.

    They need to go into Courses and select the Course -- click on Docs -- Add

    and then specify the Document number (000000417) or barcode.

    If this happens frequently, then some additional analysis might be necessary.
