Hello Lisa

We had a similar problem for multi-branch libraries when we went to 3.00.06.
We have not quite got to the bottom of it yet but - check that both 
location codes for the item are a match with your branch code. (item 
current location and permanent location) In our case sometimes the item 
current location was not the same or was blank, so the item needed to be 
Then there is a preference HomeOrHoldingBranchReturn - check it seems to 
be set to the item location field that you want to control transfers.

Hope this helps
