Hi Janet,

I can load the code Dan contributed yesterday to https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1611495 on a MassLNC VM if you (or anyone else on the list) want to test it to see if it fixes the issue.

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.

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??

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
