08:31 bigbrovar_ Hi guys, trying to import biblio records from spreedsheet to koha via marc edit.. here is a copy of the spreedsheet[…]k1TY2c/edit?pli=1 I have mapped each columns to the relevant marc tags and also have columns for koha holding tags in 952
08:32 bigbrovar_ however after mapping and importing the marcedit generated mrc file to koha. I noticed all the items have multiple holdings (8 holdings to be exact) I don't know what I am doing wrong :/
08:32 drojf bigbrovar_: without looking at your file: all 952 subfields per item need to be on one line, or you will get one item per line. that is usually the problem in this case
08:32 bigbrovar_ ok I fixed this by joining the holding tags in the marcedit text delimitator translator.
08:33 drojf see ;)
08:33 bigbrovar_ drojf: u mean in the spreedsheet the 952 fields would be in one row per item?
08:34 bigbrovar_ drojf: because the problem I have now is can not find a way to indicate the number of holding an item has.
08:36 drojf you need to have exactly one 952 for each item that you want to inport. 952$asomething$bsomething$csomething will lead to one item. 952$asomething 952$bsomething 952$csomething will lead to three items being imported
08:36 drojf s/inport/import
08:39 bigbrovar_ drojf: I guess my approach was different. I am trying to take a bilblo records which exist in spreadsheet and mapp it to marc (using marcedit delimited text translator) for importation to koha.
08:39 drojf sorry, i don't know how marcedit works
08:41 bigbrovar_ from what I think u are saying, I have to enter the 952 subfields directly into the spreedsheet.. instead of entering the values in different collumns and then mapping the collumns to the appropriate subfield using marcedit which is what am doing
08:41 bigbrovar_ oh ok
08:42 bigbrovar_ drojf: how do u transform a spreedsheet from an existing library into marc for importation to koha.
08:43 drojf i wrote a perl script to import our data, because i had to take care of a lot of crazy things from the old database. in only ran the output through marcedit once to check it is valid and compile it into mrc.
08:44 drojf but did not use marcedit to manipulate the data. no idea how to do that
08:45 bigbrovar_ drojf: mind sharing ur script :p
08:47 drojf bigbrovar_: you cannot use it. it was for a custom filemaker database with no relation to marc (or common sense). it would make no sense, you would have to change more than you use. and besides that, i started learning perl witch that thing, it is ridiculously bad and full of errors
08:47 drojf but have you checked the migration toolbox?
08:48 drojf i think there is something for csv if you want to look into doing your own script
08:49 bigbrovar_ drojf: I will look into it thanks.
08:49 * drojf is off to the library
08:49 drojf good luck bigbrovar_

15:23 jcamins drojf: cait and I have discussed it, and we've decided to pass the baton on to you.
15:24 jcamins It is now your responsibility to keep the channel active on the weekend.
15:25 drojf jcamins: yay! that sounds like a lot of fun
15:26 drojf i could prepare a koha-related monologue for each weekend
15:26 drojf or something completely unrelated
15:26 drojf "how i sent the first sms via raspberry pi"

17:08 * drojf pepares to go for a walk in the cozy summer
18:09 drojf yes. it's really warm
18:09 drojf now that i have confirmed that, back to sitting in front of that big fan
18:26 drojf1 joined #koha
19:37 drojf @later tell tcohen is there a reason why you do not assign bugs you are working on to yourself in bz?
19:37 huginn` drojf: The operation succeeded.
19:58 drojf excellent idea to test packaging bugs today. cpu temperature ~90°C. i think my notebook will shutdown at 100
20:08 drojf @later tell gmcharlt any objections to changing 10638 from enhancement to bug? i have done installation workshops and this message is very confusing to people new to koha. we have probably way more 'wrong' impressions of that message than actual use cases nowadays and it would be nice to have the patch in 3.12/3.10.
20:08 huginn` drojf: The operation succeeded.
20:09 gmcharlt drojf: Show alert when receiving an order with holds/reserves ?
20:10 drojf oh. oops :D no, not really
20:10 drojf bug 10574
20:10 huginn` Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=10574 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, robin, Needs Signoff , Remove the message about upgrading to 3.4
20:10 drojf d'oh
20:10 drojf sorry :)
20:10 gmcharlt now I am a bit less confused
20:10 gmcharlt :)
20:10 drojf hehe
20:11 drojf and i thought "should i check the number? no, i think i did" :D
20:11 gmcharlt to answer your question, I've no objection to your reclassifying it
20:11 drojf yay \o/
21:41 drojf and the patch works too :)
