[Koha] Export/Import question from Alice 5.0

Many thanks for your email. I spent some time at this yesterday and figured out what the problem was.
Even though I was choosing marc21 as the import character encoding on the Stage marc for input, it was not until I set marc21 in the system preferences that the records were being imported with the correct field mappings.
Thanks for your suggestions all the same.

Sounds like the MARCEdit changes to field haven't aligned with Koha fields correctly. When we changed from Alice to Koha, many fields needed to be re-mapped in MARC prior to import because Alice uses a completely different MARC tag structure for various areas. It is a mix of standard and non-standard.

We are looking to moving from Alice 5.0 to Koha. To that end, I have been playing around with getting our data exported from Alice and imported into Koha.
The guts of the problem are this:
- After exporting a MARC variant file from Alice, and importing it into Alice, the MAIN ENTRY--PERSONAL NAME field is populated with what appears to be todays date, with frey 50 after it, e.g. Personal name 20110321 frey50 - instead of Personal name Koha_author as it was entered in Alice.
- I used MARCedit to have a look at my export files, and this is what I am getting:
=LDR 00354nam 22001451a 4500
=040 \\$aRoyal College of Physicians of Ireland
=300 \\$aKoha_Physical Description
But this is what I am getting back once the import has completed and the index re-indexed, which is all correct except for the MAIN ENTRY LINE
fixed length control field 00404nam a22001571a 4500
INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER
Terms of availability 0.00
Original cataloging agency Royal College of Physicians of Ireland
DEWEY DECIMAL CLASSIFICATION NUMBER
Item number KOH
MAIN ENTRY--PERSONAL NAME
Personal name 20110321 frey50
Edition statement Koha_Edition
PUBLICATION, DISTRIBUTION, ETC. (IMPRINT)
Name of publisher, distributor, etc Koha_Publisher
Date of publication, distribution, etc Koha_Year
Extent Koha_Physical Description
General note Koha_Notes
I have tried with all the export formats available to me, namely, 02USMARC, 04USMARC with Copy information and 50 USMARC (Containing TLC Compulsory tags) from Alice.
I have also imported them as both UNIMARC or MARC21 - but to no avail.
Would anyone have any suggestions?
