Description Melia Meggs 2012-08-06 18:20:11 UTC
We don't think offline circ works quite right with 3.8.  It may be a date vs. datetime problem, perhaps?

After processing offline circ files in 3.8, we have seen some NULL issues.issuedate.

We discovered these after seeing the following error occur when going to the check-out screen.

Software error:

Can't call method "strftime" on an undefined value at
/home/koha/kohaclone/Koha/DateUtils.pm line 117

Melia, which of the 2 offline circs do you think has the problem? Or is it both of them?

Hi Chris - 

We are thinking that this is a problem with the windows client version.  Some tests have caused problems but others have not.

I think the way to test this - would be use the client, create a koc file and see if the issue_date has only a date or a datetime (before uploading the file using the uploader in circulation).  Step 2, upload the koc file into koha and see if this causes a problem in the database.  Would be great to test against master and put this to rest.

It think it would good to have someone outside of our servers - test this to either confirm or say that it works fine for them.

The last comment on this is from 2012 - has this bug reappeared since or can this be closed?

Yes, I do believe this can be closed. I cannot recreate this issue.
