Dear Vijay Kumar

I am pasting your records (vijay.mrc file) here for inline comments:


Your posted file vijay.mrc is not an mrc file. It is .mrk file and you have
to convert it into .mrc using marcedit before importing it into Koha

=LDR  00000nam a2200000Ia 45e0
Replace all 45e0 value with 4500 before converting this file to .mrc

=082  \\$a681.32.06$bKER
=100  \\0$aKERNIGHAN(Brian W) & PIKE(R)1$aPIKE(R)
100 tag is not repeatable according to MARC21 standard, So you can not use
more than one $a values in 100.  For multiple authors you have to use 750$a
(Added entry for personal names)
=245  \\$aThe Unix programmming environment
=260  \\$aNew Jersey$bPrentice- Hall$c1984
=300  \\$ax+357$fJune'95
300$f is for Type of Unit, but you have mentioned some date here.  Use
standard 300$a, $b and $c
=440  \\$aPrentice- Hall Software Series
=850  \\$aRRI
I don't know what is 850 $a (If it is some hodling information, you have to
use 942 tag)
=999  \\$1003
999$1 is not defined in Koha (I am using Koha 2).  If it is some local
number denoting items, then you have to mention it in 952
