    This name already exists. Please enter a unique name." when adding Material Type in SysAdmin?

    Question

    Several material type codes apply to books. When trying to add another of these to the Title List Material Type Display area of System Administration, received message, "This name already exists. Please enter a unique name." Why?

    Answer

    The Material Type Name entered in System Administration > Search > Title List Material Type Display is already in use by another Material Type. Voyager requires the name associated with each code to be unique. Names are case-sensitive, however, so both "Book" and "book" can be used, for example.
