Dear Bob, 

There are fields which are changing in each bib records like barcode number,
prices, shelf location (for many book shelf location is different). Do I
have to mentioned each value in column. Attached is the MARC specification

Thanks and Regards

Please reply to the list.  Then others can also help you, and others may 
learn from your experience.

Because you have nine 952 tags, Koha thinks you have 9 items attached to 
each bib.  Instead, arrange a single 952 like this:
952$a[Value]$b[Value]$c[Value]$p... and so on.  (Don't put brackets [] 
in your data: replace [Value] in each sub-field with the appropriate value.)

I hope that helps,
