RE: deleting an extra location code

If all of the locations are the same (i.e., old_loc), then you could create
a list of just these records and do a Global Update in Millennium
Cataloging, changing the location back to just "old_loc". I just recently
did this on several records that had a similar problem (had two locations --
we just wanted one) and it worked marvelously.

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.
