Accessions List Options window: Features and buttons

Feature How to use
Output to File check box
  1. Select the Output to File check box to print accessions lists to an HTML file (file extension *.html).
  2. In the text box (available only if the Output to File check box is selected), accept the displayed default file name.
    Or
    Enter the full path and file name of a diffferent *.html file.
    Or
    Click Browse and navigate to another *.html file.

With this option set, the first time you print an accessions list (File > Print Accessions List), the client prints the list to the specified file, rather than to your printer.

When you print another accessions list to the file, the client asks if you want to overwrite the existing accessions list or cancel printing.

Default: Check box is cleared. Accessions lists print to a printer. If you select the check box, the default HTML file path and file name is provided in the text box: X:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Application Data\OCLC\Connex\Db\
Accessions.html (where X is the letter of your hard drive)
 

 Caution: Each time you print an accessions list to a file, the data overwrites any existing data in the file.

 Note: If you change the option from printing to a file to printing to a printer, you must close and re-open the client for the change to take affect.

Tag on Accessions List text field Enter a MARC tag (field or field/subfield(s)) containing content you want to print automatically following the data in an accessions list entry.

Enter tag numbers and subfield codes with no spaces or delimiters (e.g., 300a)

The client appends the exact data in the field/subfield(s) you specify from the record to the end of its entry in the accessions list.
