Hello Janet, It appears a late change to that feature did not get fully implemented. It originally exported as MARC-XML, but was changed to export as MARC21 instead. However, the dialog box still includes the ".xml" extension by default.
If you manually change the extension to something more MARC-like (e.g. ".mrc"), it may behave more reliably. Ultimately, though, it depends on what software you want to use to edit the file, and how that software will interpret the contents of the file. If you have the option, tell the software that the file is in MARC21 format. In any case, I will open a bug about the ".xml" default, since giving a non-XML file an ".xml" extension is never going to be a good idea.

This feature exports a MARCXML file, which is suitable for importing via the same MARC Batch Import interface. You can simply save the file and reimport it (with different settings, or after editing the records if you wish). Feel free to reply if you have more questions.

Quickly export non-imported records When inspecting a queue in MARC Batch Import/Export, there is now a link to download to MARC file any records in the queue that were not imported into the catalog. This allows catalogers to quickly manipulate the records that failed to import using an external tool, then attempt to import them again. How does this work? The file extension seems to be for XML.

[cid:image002.png@01D1F254.9F94D180][cid:image003.png@01D1F254.9F94D180] I have been waiting for this development for four years, two months, and one week (but who's counting). I really appreciate any help on what I'm doing wrong. Thanks!
