[Isis-users] basic loan without copies database

Dear Ernesto,

Yes, I know, but there is some error in my parameters.

-        I have put loan.dat in the bases folder: no problem there: it contains: media|media

-        The database is called “media” and has this structure, with these fields, among others:
V1: the control number
V100^a the barcode

-        The parameters in bases\media\loans\en are

o   Loans_cn.pft: v1

o   Loans_conf.tab: BC_ [referring to the index, e.g. BC_H14/1234, which is a barcode stored in v100^a]

o   Loans_display.pft: v10,” “v20 [referring to v10 and v20 with title info etc.]

o   Loans_inventorynumber.pft: v100^a

o   Loans_show.pft: v100^t

o   Loans_store.pft: “^t”v10,” “v20

o   Loans_totalitems.pft: f(nocc(v100),1,0)

o   Loans_typeofobjects.pft: M

Can you find any error in all this?

Dear Piet

The parametrization of the circulation module is different if you don't have the copies database active

Dear colleagues,

I am setting up a loan with the basic loan for a database without the copies database. I have some problems with it:

(1)   When I do a loan, the result is: “This copy does not exist in the loan objects database”, which is obvious because I am not using it… The copy information is simply in the bibliographic database, and noting is stored. Normally the system should add a prefix in order to the data and search the bibliographic database in order to find the record etc. This prefix defined in loans_conf.tab, but it looks like this is not executed.

(2)   When I click on “list” next to the “Accession number” box the full index is displayed, containing the prefixes, e.g. BC_H14/3105 etc. instead of simply H14/3105. This is not the case when you use the copies and loanobject database. Normally only the accession numbers should be displayed without the prefixes, and not the full index with prefixes. So, something must be wrong too.

Any suggestions?
