Create Lists - Import Records Button (Record Numbers Only)

The Import Records feature is used to import bibliographic and patron record numbers into a review file in Sierra.  The records numbers need to be saved in file with a txt extension. Use Notepad, or save the file as txt with Word. No other file extension will work for this process.  This process does not currently work for any record types other than bib or patron.

  1. Go to Create Lists to use the Import Records function.
  2. Find a review file that will fit the number of records.
  3. Click Import Records.
  4. Fill in the Review File Name.  
  5. Leave the Store Record Type as Bibliographic for bib numbers, or .b numbers.  Change the Store Record Type to Patron for the patron or .p numbers.
  6. Click the Choose File button.
  7. Find your file. Click Load.
  8. The b numbers or p numbers will show up on the screen. The review file number will be listed.  
  9. Click Import.
  10. Go to the review file number to check the import.
