Note: Enabling the export of workforms is an optional action.
This option supports vendor creation of records to be loaded into WorldCat. Since some library local systems may not support incoming workforms, the client does not export workforms by default; you must set the option. The option applies to all online and local save file types (bibliographic and authority). Workforms are new records that have not been added to WorldCat and therefore do not have OCLC control numbers.
- In the Export Options window (Tools > Options), select the Allow export of workforms check box. By default, the check box is not selected. The Export command is disabled for a displayed workform, and you are prevented from exporting any workforms selected in a list.
- Click OK when finished setting all Export options.
- If the option is selected, the Export command is enabled for a displayed workform in an online or local save file, or for selected records that include workforms in a save file list.
- If the option is not selected, the Export command is disabled for a displayed workform in an online or local save file. The Export command is enabled for selected records in a list that include workforms. However, when you export, you receive the following error message: Action not valid for record [save file number].
You must unselect workforms to export.
