[Koha] problem with authority

Hi there,

I am trying to import MARC authority records using the bulkauthimport script and am not having any luck. I'm running 2.2.9. I've defined authority types and only attempted to import a small number of one type. I am seeing the following in the script, which makes it seem that Koha wants UNIMARC authority records as these codes correspond to byte 9 (I think) in a UNIMARC authority. 


$authtypecode="NP" if ($authtypecode eq 'a'); # personnes

$authtypecode="CO" if ($authtypecode eq 'b'); # collectivités

$authtypecode="NG" if ($authtypecode eq 'c'); # géographique

$authtypecode="NM" if ($authtypecode eq 'd'); # marque

$authtypecode="NF" if ($authtypecode eq 'e'); # famille

$authtypecode="TI" if ($authtypecode eq 'f'); # Titre uniforme

$authtypecode="TI" if ($authtypecode eq 'h'); # auteur/titre

$authtypecode="MM" if ($authtypecode eq 'j'); # mot matière


I have no problem manually adding authorities, but would I'd much rather import, of course.

Thanks in advance for any advice, or for pointing out the obvious...
