    Unable to generate MFHD with specific indicators in 856 via Prebulk

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 9

    Problem Symptoms:
    * Using Prebulk to create MFHDs with 856 copied from bib records, indicators from bib not moved to MFHD

    Cause:
    Prebulk does not have parameters for generating specific indicator values when it maps data from the MFHDTAG to the specified MAPPING fields.

    Resolution:
    Two possible options:
    Method 1:
    Begin by processing bibs / generate MFHDs via Prebulk as before. Then either:
    1. Import the file as usual.
    2. Use Global Data Change (GDC) to update the indicator values in the MFHD.
    OR
    1. Export file.
    2. Edit in a MARC editor to update indicator values.
    3. Import file.

    Method 2:
    1. Create Bulk Import Rule.
    2. On Profiles tab set
    2.a. with box checked for Copy 852-855, 863-878 Fields from Bib to MFHD
    2.b. with box checked for Copy 856 Field From Bib to MFHD
    2.c. Single MFHD > Bibs, MFHDS
    2.d. Loc Field and Loc Subfield set to Field/Subfield Prebulk.cfg previously used in MAPPING stanza
    3. Mapping tab
    3.a. MARC Item Type / MARC Location = *
    3.b. Voyager Item Type / Voyager Location = Set as for LOCATIONS stanza in Prebulk.cfg
    4. Bulk Import records.
    5. Use Global Data Change (GDC) to remove 856 fields.
