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

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    How can I configure a specific subfield of a field to be displayed as extra field in GUI and OPAC with another name than the "normal" field.

    Example:
    Subfield z of field 020 (ISBN) shall be displayed as "ISBN canceled" while all other subfields of 020 shall be displayed as "ISBN"

    Procedure:
    xxxk01/tab/edit_field.eng [Comment out the following line to avoid subfield z from displaying with field 020]
    !2 z A .^-^ISBN^

    xxx01/tab/tab_expand [Lines added]
    GUI-DOC-D fix_doc_do_file_08 isbn_fix
    WEB-FULL fix_doc_do_file_08 isbn_fix

    xxx01/tab/import/isbn_fix [New table, copies field 020 and deletes from the new field subfields a, c, q so that only subfield z remains]
    ! 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
