Why do my Bib records Fixed Fields get corrupted when exporting records?

Applies to
  • Connexion client
  • Connexion browser

There are three ways to apply Constant Data records:


  1. Variable Fields only
  2. Fixed Fields only
  3. Both Variable and Fixed Fields


If you want to apply only variable fields, choose the variable field setting.


If you select Fixed Fields only or Both, and have Fixed Fields that are not being used, they will contain the pipe symbol which will overlay the Fixed Field in your MARC record. This will cause the record to be corrupted when exported.
