This page describes 4 enhancements and 15 bug fixes that apply to the system generally.

This information is part of OLIB 9>> Release Notes>> Service Pack 14


IMS Ref Description

Many records were identified in a copy of a customer's data that do not link to valid titles. A script was added to daystart (clear_absent_title_links) to clear down these now unusable records, potentially improving performance and reducing problems for deletion of linked data.



EDI Job Missing.

A customer reported that their EDI orders are not being sent. Investigation showed that the database job was, for some reason, no longer present in their database. To address this, an RSD was put together to regenerate any missing database jobs.
