Evergreen acquisitions really expects you to have a PO. I don't think
there is a way to create real copies/items in acq without creating the
PO. I haven't tested this in a while, but, my recollection is that if
you can leave the "Create Purchase Order" checkbox unchecked if you are
adding the imported lineitems to a Selection List. But those lineitems
need to be added to a PO before you can create the live copies.
Is there any reason you aren't adding those records through the MARC
Batch Import/Export interface? You should be able to configure a MARC
import to create copies based on that 962, and there are library
settings that allow you to autogenerate call numbers and barcodes as you
do in the acquisitions interface.

Load MARC Order Record works fine as long as the "Create Purchase
Order" checkbox is checked. But it returns the error message "... the
attempt to write to the database failed." when unchecked
Is there a parameter that needs to be changed/created so that I can
load a MARC record that has the correct field (962 in our case) to
create a copy/item record but not generate a PO?
