Description Nicole C. Engard 2012-07-10 19:37:34 UTC
See here : http://manual.koha-community.org/3.8/en/stafflists.html#mergebibrecs the merging bib records tool used to stop you from adding fields if they were not repeatable, but I was just able to add the two 001 fields to my destination record but the framework says it's not repeatable.  

For the 999 it didn't add it but didn't give me an error either.

I did not test, but I think bug 8064 fixes this issue.
Comment 2 Katrin Fischer 2019-04-28 13:54:10 UTC
I believe this is fixed. When checking the checkbox to get the second 001 or 245$a:

The field is non-repeatable and already exists in the destination record. Therefore, you cannot add it.
