MARC MAKER FORMAT
The export utility will export MARC records to MARC BREAKER format if that option is selected. Here is an example of a text record exported in this format:

Our implementation follows the specifications listed in the MARCMaker/MARCBreaker manual (http://www.loc.gov/marc/makrbrkr.html), with perhaps one slight exception: MARC Report does not 'break' the lines quite as short as the LC utility does (but they will always be 'broken' within approximately 70 characters).
MARC Report will recognize and load the MARC Breaker character set conversion file (marc21.txt) if it is present. This file should be located in the user's My Documents\MarcReport\Templates folder. A copy of this file is included with the program during installation; a backup copy can be found in the program directory under 'defaults/templates'.Back to top
