Enhance 505 Advanced Action

When you select Enhance 505 from the Advanced Action drop-down list and there is a period at the end of the field, the record does not update.

Workaround: Remove the period at the end of the field before running the Enhance 505 Advanced Action. The period can be replaced after the advanced action is run.

Bibliographic records derived using the Derive Electronic Record action cannot be saved to Save In-Progress files

When a bibliographic record is derived using the Derive Electronic Record action, it cannot be saved to Save In-Progress files. The newly derived record must be added to WorldCat before the end of the session to preserve the template and any edits made.

Workaround: Save the master record from which you wish to derive a new record to the Save In-Progress file. Derive the new record and save it. Delete the master record from the Save In-Progress file. Finish work on the new template and add to WorldCat from the Save In-Progress file.

Bibliographic records derived using the Derive Electronic Record action missing capital letters from field 245 subfield c

When a bibliographic record is derived using the Derive Electronic Record action, capital letters are removed from field 245 subfield c.

 

Shortcut for label printing

When you are in an LHR and attempt to use the shortcut key for label printing twice in one field, you only receive one entry on the label list.

Workaround: Click on a new field within the LHR and execute the shortcut key again.

Initial articles for field 245 in Derive Electronic Record Advanced Action

The initial article from field 245 is being transferred to field 776 $t. This will be corrected in a future release.

Workaround: Remove the initial article manually and change the second indicator to zero before you send the command to Derive Electronic Record.
