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.

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.

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
