RE: deleting an extra location code

Hi Sue,

In the text based version you can manually change the bib location by
selecting that field. First it will bring up the original location and
after a return it will bring up the zzzzz location. If you zero out the
second location by using the space bar it will take care of the multi
problem. A quicker and more efficient method would be to run the maintain
links program after on that review file after you have changed the location
back to the original code.

Hope this helps!

Subject: deleting an extra location code

We imported a large file (over 1000) which corrected existing records
(all with the same location). When we bring in batches of records, we
give them a location code of zzzzz so that we can create a list of them
easily. Then we just change the location to the proper one.

Because this one overlaid existing records, it changed the location to
"multi" using both the old location (all the same location) and zzzzz.

How can I delete the zzzzz location code (change it from "multi" to
just the original location)? I thought it would be so simple, but I
can't figure it out. I have tried it in both text and Millenium.
