Koha bug : Suppose a barcode number "1234" has been already entered in
the koha system and if by mistake someone assigns again the same
number system says barcode must be unique, but in case of entering
multiple copy instead of warning system assigns next series of
barcodes. For example there are 04 copy of the same title and
user/staff enters barcode of first book say "1234" in barcode field
and in number of copy 4 than system assigns 1234, 1235,1236 and 1237
but if 1234 is already available in the system than instead of warning
it assigns automatically next available numbers i.e. it drops the
first number (1234) and assigns 1235, 1236, 1237 ans 1238. My view is
even we are entering multiple copy and if barcode is duplicate than
koha should warn the system instead of assigning next available
numbers ? http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=15249
