Why do I receive an error when trying to import foreign language records into Connexion client?

  • When importing a group of Foreign language records into the Local Save file you receive errors.
Applies to
  • Connexion client all versions

The error is occurring because the records contain Unicode characters and the import setting is set for MARC-8.  to fix:

  1. Select File>Import records
  2. Click the  Record Characteristics Selection box and choose Character Set UTF-8 Unicode under the Bibliographic Record heading
  3. If you are still having trouble, contact OCLC Support with a list of OCLC numbers from records that give the error.  We may request you send us the import file for inspection.
