I had to do this many times, but used several different solutions.
One is to print out all records from the catalog to a tagged text-file (e.g. |TI=|v245^a) with a PFT in which you use the brackets ( ) to repeat the record for each copy with a separator in between, e.g. a line just reading $$$.
Then with a utility to convert text to ISIS (there are several) you can create from that text-file the copies-database.
For some real concrete help you will need to send a sample origin file.

Subject: [Isis-users] Copies in ABCD - how to create multiple copies-records from one catalogue record
For the University of the Netherlands Antilles we have a catalogue database with the copies-information (like the barcode) in the catalogue database. If the Library has multiple copies of a book, there are multiple barcodes in the catalogue record.
Now I want to create the records for the “copies” database in ABCD from the catalogue record. So from one catalogue record, I have to create multiple “copies” records if there are multiple barcodes. I can do all the processing of the fields using the mx-utility, but I don’t know how to create more than one record. Is there an option to do this?
Your help is much appreciated!
