Approving Pending Purchase Orders
All open orders in Orbis (i.e. orders with statuses A, B, C or D) have migrated to Voyager as pending orders using migration funds. The migration fund name ends in “Conversion” (e.g. AFRGEN Conversion) and the migration fund code ends in 999 (e.g. AFRGEN999). Before you can receive or pay for items on these purchase orders, the PO’s must be approved. Before they can be approved, you need to check the Purchase Order Type and change the fund.

1. Check The Purchase Order Type
Most orders were loaded as firm orders. If that is not the PO type for your order, please choose the correct PO type from the drop-down menu. There are 6 Purchase Order types:       Approval Continuation Depository Exchange Firm Order Gift

It is important to choose the correct type, so that we will have accurate statistics when we run reports by PO type in Voyager.

2. Change The Fund
The only way we could load the Orbis funds in open orders into Voyager was to map them to a migration fund ending in 999. In Voyager, the allocated fund codes are the same as the fund names in Orbis, but without the year at the end. (Example: AFRGEN02 becomes AFRGEN.) Since there are no expenditure class codes in Voyager, we are keeping track of the different formats by using reporting funds. The reporting fund codes have the same basic fund code as the allocated fund (AFRGEN) plus a 3-digit expenditure class code. Since we only have 10 characters for the fund code, the initial zero is dropped. Example: AFRGEN + the expenditure class code for monographs (0105) minus the initial zero = AFRGEN105. The fund name is AFRGEN Monographs; the fund code is AFRGEN105.


Since the migration funds existed only for the purpose of the data migration, you need to change the fund from the conversion fund to the correct reporting fund. Migration reporting fund name: AFRGEN Conversion Migration reporting fund code: AFRGEN999 Correct reporting fund name: AFRGEN Monographs Correct reporting fund code: AFRGEN105 You need to know the expenditure class code to choose the correct reporting fund code. If it is not obvious, check Orbis for this information. To Change The Fund: While the order is still pending, highlight the line item and, with the Quick Line Item on, click on Details.

In the fund line, delete the word “Conversion” and type in the 3-digit expenditure class code (in this case, 105). Do not leave a space between the fund name and the number.


Click on the red check box to verify the fund. It will replace the fund code with the fund name.

Be sure to click on SAVE!

3. Approve the Purchase Order After Making All Necessary Changes
All open orders were loaded with the order status “Pending” so we could make the maximum number of changes to the purchase order. Once you have made the necessary changes to the purchase order, click on APPROVE. You should use the RECEIVE ON APPROVE option (which will automatically receive the materials as the purchase order is approved) to receive the status D orders on your list from Suzanna.

To make changes to the PO after it has been approved:
Some things cannot be changed at all once the PO is approved:    pre-paid copy of a line item order site currency


After an order is approved, you can still change the following information:         fund intended location ledger/fund data line item price notes and instructions to vendors purchase order type vendor code subscription information for serials

The purchase order type remains editable after the PO is approved. Notes and instructions to the vendor for the PO or the line item may be added or edited at any time. The Edit Approved Line Item Data dialog box is used to change:    intended location line item price ledger/fund data

Highlight the line item and from the Line Item menu, select Edit Approved to get the dialog box which will allow you to make these changes.


To change the vendor code after the PO is approved, go to the Vendor History tab and click on Change Vendor.

When should you make these changes to the Purchase Order?
There are many ways to integrate these procedures into your workflow. You can update the PO’s at the point of receiving items or paying invoices.

Suzanna will run a report of the status D monograph orders for each unit. These items have been received but not paid in Orbis. You should receive these items in Voyager as you update your purchase orders. For the remaining open orders (status A or C) you can either: 1. Ask Suzanna Lengyel to run a report of all your open monograph orders as of the end of the fiscal year and work from that list. [Email] This way you can also set up claim intervals as you go through your open orders. OR 2. Wait to request a report until September or October. Update your purchase orders as you receive incoming books. Your list will be smaller in a month or two and you can use it to follow up on any open orders that haven’t yet been received.

The purchase order does not have to be approved to do check-in in the serials module or the MFHD, but it does need to be approved for invoicing to take place. If there is an obsolete price in the record which migrated from the Estimated Price field (AMT) in Orbis, please delete it, as it will cause a commitment when the PO is approved. Units which expect to pay for their serials on these records in the fall need to approve these purchase orders in Voyager before then. If your unit used VITLS to record the payments for your serials, then you have about six months (until EDI is implemented) to approve your periodical purchase orders.


Deposit Accounts
We will be keeping track of items paid for by deposit accounts (i.e. prepayments to the vendor) using a special Deposit ledger (DP FY03) containing dummy funds. Deposit accounts are most commonly used for approval plans, such as Blackwell’s. When you receive an item that has been prepaid using a deposit account, select the appropriate dummy fund from the Deposit Ledger. The ledger is organized by library, by vendor, and by expenditure class code. Be sure to enter the correct price. Acquisitions units need to tell Roy Bohlander how much money to allocate to each deposit fund. For the first year, this will be an experiment. You may keep track of your deposit account balances one of two ways: 1. 2. As commitments. You will not create invoices for your deposit materials. As expenditures by creating invoices and paying them with the dummy funds. When you approve the invoice, you get a dialog box that says, “Are you sure you wish to approve this invoice?” There are 2 Approve Options: a) Print voucher/check request b) Receive on approve DO NOT CHECK “PRINT VOUCHER/CHECK REQUEST!” These are dummy funds and the items have been prepaid, so you do not want to generate a check. There are no PTAEO numbers in the deposit funds, so a check will not be generated, but checking Print voucher/check request will send the information to a file where it will generate an error report and cause confusion. Check Receive on approve if you want the items on the invoice to be received at the same time as the invoice is approved. Then click the Yes button and the invoice will be approved.


Currencies & Exchange Rates
To view Exchange Rates in Voyager, go to Ledgers and Funds on the List Bar and choose Currency. When you select a currency from the menu on the left, the conversion rate displays in the Conversion Rate box in the center of the screen. The box to the right shows when the conversion rates were last updated.

The Fiscal Support Team will continue to maintain the bibliographic record of exchange rates so staff can print out a list of exchange rates if they want to. To access this record in the Cataloging module, do a title search on “Orbis Exchange Rates” or “Exchange Rates for Yale University Library.” You may also go to Record > Retrieve by record ID > Bibliographic and search on “3198082.” For a list of currencies, see the appendix.


Vendors in Voyager
The easiest way to search vendors in Voyager is by the vendor ID (if you know it). You can search vendors by name in Voyager, but they must be searched exactly as they were entered in Orbis. Since there was very limited space in Orbis, many vendor names had to be abbreviated. Example: American Association for the Advancement of Science was entered in Orbis as AMER ASSN FOR ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE and also as AMER ASSN FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE The best way to search vendors is to use the phrase search in Voyager. A phrase search on “ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE” doesn’t work, however, because those words are on 2 different lines in the vendor record. (SEE 6AMAS15002). There are also hundreds of vendor records entered under THE. For these reasons, we are keeping VENDOWEB ( ) as a reference tool. Because the name search is a keyword search, you don’t need to worry about initial articles. (You still have to search a vendor name the way it was entered.) You can search by vendor name or address to call up the vendor ID. VENDOWEB will not be updated, so new vendors will not be added, but it will be a useful tool to search for older vendors. If you still have a printed list of the vendors, keep that for future reference.

New Vendor
You cannot create a purchase order without a vendor code. In Orbis you had the option of putting a D in the vendor field if there was no vendor code. In Voyager, use the vendor New Vendor (the vendor code is also NEW VENDOR) to generate a purchase order. The phrase “New Vendor” will print on the purchase order. You will have to add the vendor’s address to the printed purchase order or envelope before mailing it. Continue to submit requests for new vendor codes to the Fiscal Support Team.


Processing Gifts
Do not create a purchase order for gifts. In the Cataloging module, search for the item. Bring over the bibliographic record. Create a MFHD (holdings) for your location. 1. If you do not need to record the donor, put the word “gift” in the internal note field (|x) in the 852 field of the MFHD after the location code (|b). 852 8 0 |b sml |x gift

Remember to use first indicator 8 for on order and in process records. Use second indicator 0 for single part monographs and second indicator 1 for serials and multipart monographs. 852 8 0 |b sml |h In Process |x gift 852 0 0 |b sml |h HD229988 |i L65 (LC) |x gift 2. If you want to record the donor, add that information to the 852 field: 852 8 0 |b med |x gift of Elwood P. Dowd Reports can be run to count the number of gifts received in a particular year and also to produce lists of gifts from a particular donor.


Claims, Cancels, and Returns (Monographs)
The printed Claim, Cancel, and Return notices are batch jobs that are run centrally. Before generating a Claim, Cancel, or Return, please set the following Workflow options under the Line Items tab:  Select Show Line Item Relations > Show Marks/Claims > Marked Line Items and Claimed Line Items. Click OK.

Generating Claims and Cancels
To Mark the line item/copy as a Claim or Cancel from the PO: 1. Select Line Item. 2. Click Recv/Mark.


3. Click on the white box next to the title. It will turn blue, indicating that it has been selected. 4. Select the Mark Reason (Claim or Cancel) using the drop-down menu. 5. Click on Mark and then Close. 6. Deselect the line item and highlight the line below which says Marked/Claimed. Depending on the Mark Reason you selected, either the Generate Claim or Generate Cancel button will be activated. 7. Click on the button to generate a Claim or Cancel Notice.

Claim Types
For Claims, there are a few extra steps. When you click on Generate Claim, you get a dialog box. The vendor code, vendor name, and claim date are taken from the line item. Choose a Claim Type from the drop-down menu. The Comment box is for internal notes; the information you enter there will not be sent to the vendor.

The following Claim Types are available: Can you supply? Copies received in damaged condition Does subscription include online access? Has publication ceased? Imperfect item(s) supplied Insufficient copies received Invoice received but no item


Latest volume not yet received Missing depository item Missing exchange issue Missing gift issue Missing issue Missing on approval Missing volume Next item on subscription not received No copies received Other reason Please quote price and availability Please rush Please send invoice Please send renewal invoice Previous item on subscription not received Second claim. Please respond Standing order volume not yet received Subscription paid but nothing received Third claim. Please respond Volume not yet received Wrong item(s) supplied. The line item now shows a status of claimed in the Purchase Order.

To Update Claims

America. Resubmit order to get from UK Title not distributed in N. America. Order placed with UK distributor Unable to locate publisher Unable to locate title

Order Maintenance
To view your marked and claimed items, select Order Maintenance from the List Bar. Click on Problems to view Marked items. You may do a complex search using up to 4 search criteria (e.g. by operator ID, location, vendor, and date marked). You may also generate claims, cancels, and returns from the Problems Screen by highlighting the line item and clicking the appropriate button. Once you have generated a Claim, Cancel, or Return, the line item disappears from the Problems Screen. The Cancels and Returns are gone for good. The Claims may be viewed from the Claims Screen in Order Maintenance. There is additional information in Order Maintenance that you cannot see from the Purchase Order. The Marked/Claimed line in the PO shows how many claims and vendor responses have been sent, but only displays the text of the most recent Claim Type and no Vendor Responses. In the example below, 2 claims have been sent and 1 vendor response received. The 2nd claim was claim type “Second claim.”


To see the previous Claim Types or any of the Vendor Responses, go to the Claims Screen in Order Maintenance. The example below shows that the vendor responded on July 3rd that the item is on back order.


Generating Returns (Monographs) In order to generate a Return notice, the line item must be received.
To Mark the line item/copy as a Return from the PO: 1. Select Line Item. 2. Click Recv/Mark. 3. Click on the white box next to the title. It will turn blue, indicating that it has been selected. 4. Select Return (the only Mark Reason for received items) from the drop-down menu. 5. Click on Mark and then Close. 6. Deselect the line item and highlight the line below which says Marked/Claimed. The Generate Return button will be activated.


7. Click Generate Return to generate a return notice. The Line #/Status for that line item now shows as Returned. The return notices are batch jobs that are run centrally, like NOTIS purchase orders and vendor memos were. Note: When the return is generated, the fund commitments or expenditures and line item subtotal(s) and total(s) are adjusted and the status is updated with today’s date.

Multipart Monographs
Any item which is received over time must be set up in the Serials Module to be received and claimed. The Serials Implementation Group has written documentation for Standing Orders which can also be used for Multipart Monographs. The only time you do not need to do this is if you receive the entire mulitvolume set at one time; then you can add the volumes to the MFHD and receive the set on the PO.


Receipt of a Multipart Monograph (MPM) or Book Contin is performed in the Voyager Acquisitions Module. The following steps are used to check in Multipart Monographs. The title for this example is v.6 of the Multipart Monograph. Emerging infections. 1. Subscription Maintenance: Appropriate subscription maintenance is necessary in the Voyager Acquisitions Module prior to checking-in a Multipart Monograph volume. a. Search for the Multipart Monograph title in Serials Check-In Search. b. If the Multipart Monograph title is found, then proceed to step 2 below: Check-in of a Multipart Monograph in the Voyager Acquisitions Module. c. If a Multipart Monograph title cannot be found after a Serials Check-In Search, subscription maintenance is necessary. The steps to perform this maintenance are: o Retrieve the appropriate purchase order in the Search Order window found on the left Tool Bar. o To search by title, use the pull-down menu in the Search By: box and highlight and click on Bibliographic Info. o Click on the ellipses button in the Search for: box. A Search box will appear. (The system defaults to a Nonkeyword search.) o Use the pull down menu in the Search by box and highlight and click on Title. o Enter the MPM title in the Search for: box and press on the Do search button. d. Highlight the appropriate title in the Titles Index box press the OK button.


e. The title now appears in the Search For: box in the Search Orders window. Press the Search button. f. Highlight the appropriate line item in the Search Orders window and press the Edit button. g. Highlight the appropriate line item in the Purchase Order window and press the Details button. h. Important note: make sure that the Quick Line Item is off (it should display as Quick Line Item off). i. In the Line Item window, click on the Type tab. The line item type should be Multi-part. Press the Subscription Pattern button (see Example 1). j. In the Subscription Maintenance window, press the New button. The title for the Multipart Monograph will now appear in the Component Name box. Insure that the Check-in title box is checked and press the Save button (see Example 2). Note: Subscription maintenance is required only once per title. 2. Check-in of a Multipart Monograph (MPM) in the Voyager Acquisitions Module: a. Search for the title in Serials Check-in (see Example 3). b. In the Serials Check-In Search window, press the Maintenance button (see Example 4). c. In the Subscription Maintenance window, select the NonPredictive Component Pattern (see Example 5). d. Press the Add Issue button. An Add New Issue box will appear (see Example 6). e. Add the appropriate enumeration/chronology information in the Enumeration/Chronology: box and press the Add Issue button. Then press the Start Over button. f. Using the toolbar on the left, return to the initial Serials CheckIn, and search for the title again. (Voyager will retain the title information.) g. Return to Serials Check-in. h. Enter the title in the Search For: box. i. Press the Check-in >> button (see Example 3). j. Highlight the appropriate volume in the Issue(s) in Hand Box and press the Quick Check-In Button (see Example 7).


k. The receipt transaction can be confirmed in Receipt History (see Example 8). l. In order to suppress the received volume from the OPAC, go to the Receipt History tab in the Serial History window. o Highlight the received item. o Press Display in OPAC button so that the Display in OPAC column is “No” (see Example 8a).

A Claim for a Multipart Monograph can be generated in the Voyager Acquisitions Module without relying on a Predictive Pattern. o The Subscription Maintenance described previously is necessary before a Claim can be generated. o In addition, the missing issue must be “identified” in the Voyager Acquisitions Module before it can be claimed. For this procedure, we will use the same title as that used for the Multipart Monograph check-in: Emerging infections. For this example we shall claim v.7 in this series. 1. Retrieve the Serial Check-in record for the title (see Example 4). 2. Press the Maintenance button. 3. In the Subscription Maintenance window press on the Non-Predictive Component tab. 4. Add the issue to be claimed by pressing the Add Issue: button. In the Add New Issue box enter the appropriate enumeration/chronology information for the item to be claimed in the Add New Issue box and press the Add Issue: button (see Example 6).


5. The issue to be claimed will now appear in the Issues in Hand: box of the Serials Check-in screen (see Example 9). 6. To generate the claim:  Press the Accept button.  Highlight the small box next to the line item for the issue.  Insure that Mark Reason: box contains the word “Claim.”  Press the Mark button (see Example 10).  Press the Back key.  At the Serials Check-In Receive/Mark screen, press the History button.  Go to the Problem History tab. The issue to be claimed should appear as a line item (see Example 11).  Highlight the line, and press the Generate Claim button.  In the Generate Claim box, check the Postal Mail check box in the Send Claim via box and press the OK button. 7. A Claim has been generated and will be printed. Note: The history of this Claim is not retained by the Voyager Acquisitions Module. The Claim will not appear in the Problems or Claims sections of Order Maintenance.
