[Koha] UNIMARC cataloging, authority to 200f?

Hello Paul,

Thank you for your response. I was already using the 700 field for the author. What confused me was the fact that in the interface the label for the author's name was "Additional Authors". I'm begining to think this is only an error in the text and I'll try to modify it. 

What remains to be tested now is the possibility to also import the link between biblios and authorities from the old database. I managed to import biblios from the stage import interface and authorities using the bulkauthimport.pl. However, link_bibs_to_authorities.pl does not seem to work on Unimarc.

Thck you again for the confirmation, 

Kind regards,

Hi Catalina,

In UNIMARC, the 200$f is not related to an authority. Look at 700 field
to get the author authority.
The 200$f contains the author name as displayed on the book, not
necessary the authority form

To answer your question: you can't connect 200$f to an authority.
