    Description:
    Suggested configuration for checking if a bibliographic record is also connected to a course before deleting it.

    Resolution:
    SI 16384-92627, 16384-152795

    Suggested configuration for checking if a bibliographic record is also connected to a course before deleting it.

    1. Please note also that there is no direct link from BIB to courses (only through ADM). For one BIB library it is feasibly possible to have myriads of pairs ADM/Course reading libraries.

    2. Here is a suggestion for accomplishing the desired goal without any change to the software (only configuration)
    add in the ADM library, in check_doc table, a line such as:

    CATALOG-DELETE check_doc_delete_lkr

    3. As a result of the above line in the check_doc table the course doc will be found and not the BIB. This is because this routine (check_doc_delete_lkr) will return only links for which the ADM doc is not source. This means that it will not return the ADM link between BIB and ADM, but it will return the ITM link between ADM and Course.

    4. Note that in the above case the error message received will be error 0011 in ./error_eng/check_doc): "Administrative record nnnnnnnnn in library USM30 points to current document with link type ITM."

    Additional recommendation:

    Modify also the check_doc_mandatory tables of XXX01 and XXX50 adding the following lines:

    CATALOG-DELETE 0011 M

    NAV-MAP-DELETE 0011 M Link BIB <--> ADM presents

    This will prevent the possibility to force the deletion of a file if there is a link between ADM and BIB. Otherwise the deletion is forced (for example from the Navigation tree with the command Delete all) and also is overwritten the error that is shown only when the record is deleted in the ADM.
    It is a little more complicated but it helps not to have "ghost" records in XXX30"
