The offset and length fields will work only on the control fields in a marc record.

There is not a way in the record matching rules as they currently exist that will match isbns as you mention.

Subject: [Koha] When importing records, question about matching rule

When importing records, my matching rule works when ISBN matches identically in both records .. so … I need to modify my ISBN matching rule so that it matches books that MAY have the prefix 978 in front of the ISBN.
Does anyone know how to modify the matching rule so that 978MATCH and MATCH will match?
My current rule is
Tag             020   (ISBN)
Subfield   a
Offset       3      ( I tried 3 so it would ignore the 978 but this did not work) 
Length     0
Normalization rule :   blank
Happy Holidays everyone!!!
