[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] ACQ - temp barcodes / call numbers issue

Hi Elaine,

I haven't heard of this particular problem happening here. However, I'm 
also not sure how often we have a situation where a library would be 
uploading the order record more than once, which might explain why I 
haven't heard of it occurring.

As far as where to start looking, for the barcodes and call numbers you 
only see in holdings maintenance, has anyone done a query against the 
acq.lineitem_detail table to see if they exist there? Or perhaps looking 
at the import queues would shed some light on the matter.

Also, I just wanted to note that I wouldn't expect any copies that were 
uploaded to a selection list, but then never moved to the PO, to create 
a live copy in the database that would be available through Holdings 
Maintenance. Not unless the user had selected the option to "load items 
for imported" records on the upload screen. I usually recommend that 
people leave that option deelected since the copies are automatically 
loaded when the PO is activated.
