    3. Check Input File Against Database (manage-36)
    Create a table ./xxx01/tab/tab_match_script.ebr containing the following line ...
    !1 2 3 4 5
    !!-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!>
    01 match_doc_gen 1 stop TYPE=IND,TAG=001,CODE=STIDN

    ... and add the name of the match script when running manage-36.

    Output file 1 will contain the numbers of those records that found no match in the database.
    Output file 2 will contain the numbers of those records that found a unique match in the database.
    Output file 3 will contain the numbers of those records that found more than a single match in the database. This file has to be handled manually.

    (4) Load ALEPH Sequential MARC Records (manage-18) with option "Delete a record"
    Input file must be output file 2 of manage-36.
