I got an error when uploading a file from a vendor that indicated a shelving location doesn't exist for a branch. The error read "Library Shelving Location name was not found in branch."

Navigate to the Service Configuration and check the Holdings Code Translation table for the exact Shelving Location Name. You may need to copy the list of shelving location names into notepad in order to view the shelving location name. This is because shelving locations may appear on more than one line. They are separated by a semi colon (;). Make sure the shelving location name is complete and matches exactly what the vendor sent. The shelving location name is case-sensitive.
