I am trying to add constant data to my imported records, but the fixed fields do not populate.

  • You cannot add constant data to your imported records or retain fixed field data.
Applies to
  • Connexion client

You will need to first validate the record and then add the constant data from within the record. There is no need to fix the errors found by validation to do so.

  1. Make sure you are signed in so that full validation can be conducted.
  2. Open an imported record.
  3. Validate the record.
  4. Apply the constant data.
Additional information

If you’re having trouble applying the constant data after validating the bib record, contact OCLC Support. Please tell us if you’re using a local or online constant data record.
