Bath edit record to change one character in a control field

Caroline Cyr-La-Rose
Hi all,

Is there a way to use the batch record edit / MARC modification template
tools to change specific characters in the leader or other control fields?

I want to add audience information to a bunch of records. When I try to
make my MARC modification template, I can't enter let's say "Add/Update
fields 008/22 with value j". The "Field" field is limited to 3
characters, so I can't write 008/22 and the "subfield" field is limited
to 1 character so I can't write 22.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Caroline,

we don't use the tool so far, but I think it might not be possible right
now.

I've looked in bugzilla and couldn't find a related bug report, only the
original bug:

Bug 11395 - Batch modifications for records

Caroline, Katrin,

Indeed, control fields are not handled (yet?) by MARC modification
templates.

Cheers,
Jonathan
