[Koha] Error when trying to save catalogue records

Hi folks!

I'm hoping someone can help me with an error I'm getting which is preventing me from amending existing catalogue records or creating new catalogue records.  Whenever I try to save a record, I receive the following error:

Tag "" is not a valid tag. at /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/Biblio.pm line 575

Checking through the community's documentation in manuals, wiki and IRC logs, I think I have tracked it down to the following lines:


        my $authfield =

        MARC::Field->new( $authtypedata->{auth_tag_to_report},

        '', '', "a" => "" . $field->subfield('a') );

However, I don't know where I go from here to fix it.  We're using Koha version

Many thanks.


PS we did finally get our self-loan station up and running, after much toing and froing with the vendors.
