[Koha] Staged records auto match on ISBN

Hi Richard,

If memory serves me correctly, I had a similar problem when importing records.  It turned out the problem record was actually the previous one in the file to the one being reported.  Take a look at the marc file you are importing and see if the record just previous to this one is the culprit.

Just a thought.

Subject: [Koha] Staged records auto match on ISBN

In the tools section, I recently tried to upload a file of MARC records to Koha. The match point was set to the ISBN (020$a) and I was notified of a match to a record already in my catalog. When I looked at the MARC records for the match however, the ISBN's are not the same and these two records should not have matched.

This has happened several times and I am trying to figure out the reason for these matches. Any assistance would be appreciated!

Here is the screen shot from the Staged records screen:

Here is the record that was already in our catalog:
