Yes.   I have a list of about 8,000 duplicates gained via some comparison
scripting I did and was looking for a way to submit the two numbers and have
the merge happen like it would if I did the merge through the interface.

 

Thanks.

Jim,

 

Do you mean something other than record buckets? You can put bib records in
a bucket and then select to merge them. The records open tiled vertically
and you select the lead (retained) one. In this interface you can edit the
record if you want to include something from the merged record in the
retained record. If you edit using the flat text editor you can copy and
drag the data from one record to another. The merged record will then show
as deleted. Merging records this way links the TCN, although the retained
record doesn't display it.

Subject: [OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Programmatic Merging of Bibliographic Records

 

I raised the question at the conference regarding the ability to merge
records outside the program interface and was told there was a
procedure/function that would allow this to be done.  Does anyone know where
I can find this function?   My searching has availed me naught.  I found
something under the Vandelay tables but not sure it is what I am needing as
the above mentioned function is supposed to take two tcn numbers.

 

Thanks.

 

Jim
