Question: Can you please tell me if it is possible to make an item that has been lost not lost anymore? I cannot find how to do that. Please also give me directions on how to make it not lost if possible.

Answer: You can move items from the LIBRARY_LOST table to the main library catalog. First, select the record in the table, click the Move Items tab, and click Move-Item. The item is added as a new item with a new barcode and new record ID. Next, scan the barcode label into the BARCODE data field or print a new barcode label.


Question: When I follow the instructions in the tutorial, it says to locate the item, then in window on lower right click the 'lost' button. There is no 'lost' button on my screen, only 'move'. If I click this it says it says I need to check in the item first.

Answer: The message indicates that the item is loaned out (not returned). You cannot delete or move the "not returned" item. First, process the check-in transaction and then delete or move it.
