Hi Dan,

Thanks for the reply.  I am able to change the file extension to .mrc by 
choosing the 'all files' and then typing in the extension in the blank box. I 
want to be able to open files in MARCedit where I can make changes to the file 
or export out an Excel list of titles and ISBNS, etc.  When I load files of 
online resources I often find duplicate matches on existing records. I want to 
give a list of these for my staff to resolve. If there are a few I write down 
the numbers. In some files there may be 50-100 records. Right now I am 
rearranging the queue view (but that's another story for another development 
idea) and taking a screenshot of twenty records at a time, about the maximum I 
can get on one screen. Then I load on 'best' match. Being able to have the 
system create a file or list of non-imported records will be a big help 
timesaver.

If I export out as XML I can open it in Notepad++.  I found that trying to open 
it with the default Office XML Handler, which is what is opening the MARC 
Mapping to MODS, I don't see anything. If I click on File>save as, I can save a 
.mrc file but it only saves the first record. I've used Notepad++ to make 
Evergreen brief record templates so I'm familiar with MARC in that XML format. 
I just can't get Vandelay exported file to open in XML.  Is that because it's 
really a non-XML file, the bug you reported?

My Notepad++ file looks like this:

Instead of like this:

Thanks again,
Janet

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.

Sincerely,
Dan

Hi Janet,

You aren't doing anything wrong.  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.

Remington

Subject: [OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] REL 2.10 and export non-imported records

Hi,

I'm testing REL 2.10:
8.3.2. 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.

I'm saving to my desktop where the icon appears to be MARC to MODS mapping??
[cid:image002.png@01D1F3DE.A349FF40][cid:image003.png@01D1F3DE.A349FF40]

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!
Janet
