Thanks Mark,

I have changed the Book and library name to the value in the code column as suggested, but the error remains. Wondering if there’s any other parts of it that maybe wrong?

Without the 952 field it works fine, and it also worked fine when it was just 952$a, $b, and $y. Whenever I try to stage the file it just comes back with “fail to submit form: error”. What is the problem with my MARC please?
