[Koha] Re: inventory.pl not working for me

When I search the OPAC, I get a column in the results that is titled
"call number". However, the value of this is not always unique. Of
course this is a different field than itemcallnumber, but perhaps one
field could be copied to the other. I'm guessing that itemcallnumber
must be unique in order for the reports to work properly and so copying
one field to the other would not solve my problem. Could anyone confirm
if this is true or not.
