- When you try to save a MARC Bibliographic or Authority record, you find that you can't save or replace the record because another OCLC symbol, OCLCA, has edited it in the meanwhile.

The OCLCA symbol is generated by the control headings update service and is initiated by changes to the authority record. To avoid this issue, try the following workaround:
- Make the changes you need to the bibliographic record that appear outside of the 1XX, 7XX, and 6XX tags.
- Save/replace the Master Bib record.
- Edit any needed authority records that need to be changed and save them down.
- If you need to add a new authority record, go back into the original bib record and add/link it to the authority record.
