Remove the SBARCODE memo

Learn how to remove the SBARCODE memo which is created by the system every time a Stockitem barcode is changed in Amlib.

The SBARCODE memo is created by the system every time a Stockitem barcode is changed. This can present problems mass deleting Stockitems later, so many libraries like to prevent this memo from being saved.

  1. In Amlib go to Main > Supervisor > Supervisor screen
  2. Then go to LibraryMenu > MemoTypes
  3. Select F1 New and enter the details as below then F3 Save
    Memo Type – SBARCODE
    Description – System Memo for change of Stockitem Barcode
    Valid for Holdings – Y
    Valid for Members – N
    Show As Default – N
    Expires in n days time – -1

  4. Log out of Amlib on all PCs and then the memo will no longer be generated when a stockitem barcode is changed

     Note: If you have many items with the SBARCODE memo, you may wish to increase the number of Stockitems the table displays so you don’t been to run the deletion so many times.
