What is it

What is it?

This is a menu-driven shelflist program that's easy to copy into your Voyager reports.mdb so that it is automatically customized for your library's locations.

You pick the location and LC Class range from drop-down lists.

You have the option to specify a specific item status from a drop-down list and/or specify a minimum or maximum number of historical charges.

This lets staff run a variety of reports without having to know Access or how to modify queries.

Details to consider

Details to consider

  • You can modify the report if you wish.

  • I’ve included the author field in the queries in case you want to add that to the reports.

  • You should have the Unicode module already in your reports.mdb but I have included it in case you need to import it.

  • The Unicode module is used for proper display of Unicode characters in the Title or Author fields.


You can also use this with non lc call numbers

You can also use this with non-LC call numbers.


Non lc call numbers

Non-LC call numbers

  • Must use “through” call number even if it is the same

  • Case sensitive

There is some Visual Basic used to select which query to run but you don’t need to know that. Basically the name of the query comes from which criteria are selected.
