Do these patron records have a common expiry date?
More significantly, will they have a common expiry dates on Millennium?
If so, it is easy to update the expiry date of a group of patron records
in Global or Rapid Update.
If these patron records have different expiry dates and you want to retain
the existing expiry date for each patron, I don't believe Global Update
will be able to do it.
You may want to consider manipulating data before loading these records
to Millennium so expiry dates in the note field are mapped to the
appropriate field in incoming records. Format 4 on the user manual page
#101687 might be the best option. Good luck!
