    Email address in ARTEmail files with ADD keyword

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Question

    Yesterday we began using the keyword code SED99 ADD within the ARTEmail files to the British Library to request delivery of articles directly to the end-user. However, the files are only transmitting 33 characters of the email address and some of them are much longer so the requests are failing. How can we increase the line length for the email address lines transmitted to the British Library?

    Answer

    According to the "Guide to ARTEmail" from the BL , the ADD address is limited to maximum 40 characters per line.

    1. So please modify the template ill-print-bldsc-c-mn-00 as follows:


    --> change the following line in the section from


    ..
    +
    S3
    :DELIVER ABOVE ITEM TO:
    - $04033 << this is the relevant line for the e-mail address
    - $04133
    - $04233
    - $04333
    - $04433
    - $04533
    +
    ..


    to


    ..
    +
    S3
    :DELIVER ABOVE ITEM TO:
    - $04040 << change the last two character from 33 to 40
    - $04133
    - $04233
    - $04333
    - $04433
    - $04533
    +
    ..

    2. Run Util i/6 to recreate the print template package.

    8. Alternative Document Delivery (ADD) Address
    Alternative Document Delivery (ADD) Address is an optional facility. You can use it to ask us to
    send items to an address different to your registered address. For example, you may find it
    useful to have documents delivered straight to researchers.

    ..

    To have all items in your file supplied to a different address, prepare your file as usual, but at the
    very beginning, on the line after your Authorisation Code, type
    :DELIVER ALL ITEMS TO:
    including the colons. Follow this with the new address; use no more than 6 lines, with a
    maximum of 40 characters per line. Leave no blank lines within the address.
    This new address will take precedence over your registered address for all documents ordered in
    this file.
    Follow the address with 4 blank lines and then complete your file as usual.
