Tab100 switch “VENDOR-SHARING” ….
I don’t really understand the difference b/w “0” and “1”. Would it be correct to assume that “0” allows vendor records with empty z70_sub_library fields; and “1” requires vendor records with sub library codes in the z70_sub_library fields?
• VENDOR-SHARING (…xxx50/tab/tab100)
– Default: 0
– 0 = this is the default if this parameter is not defined;
• 1) when a filter is active on the vendor list, vendors that have not been assigned a sublibrary/order unit are considered as "general use" vendors and therefore display in the list.
• 2) when vendor is assigned to an order, the vendors that do not have any sublibrary/order unit are considered as "general use" vendors and therefore can be assigned to the order; if the vendor has even one sublibrary/order unit, it must have a sublibrary/order unit that matches the sublibrary/order unit of the order.
– 1 = this can be useful for sites that have many vendor records that are irrelevant to a particular library. This can happen when the site is sharing a single vendor table for multiple ADM libraries, or the site has done a batch load of general vendor records.
• 1) when a filter is active on the vendor list, vendors that have not been assigned a relevant sublibrary/order unit are not displayed in the list.
• 2) when vendor is assigned to an order, the vendor must have same sublibrary/order unit as the order. Vendors that do not have any sublibrary/order unit cannot be used on orders.
The primary difference is in which Vendors can be assigned to an Order.
With VENDOR-SHARING = 0, Vendors with no Sublibrary designation (tab 4 of the Vendor record) can be assigned to any Order.
With VENDOR-SHARING = 1, the only Vendor records can be assigned to an Order are those who have an explicit Sublibrary designation on tab 4 that matches the Sublibrary on the Order record.
(NOTE: Substitute Order Unit for Sublibrary for those sites that have tab100 USE-ORDER-UNIT = Y.)
