> Removing text from ISSN fields

I just created a one time small project macro for removing print from ISSN fields in the bib record.
First I had to create a report in Aleph that listed all the ISSN fields of records with active orders.
I migrated this report to excel and stripped out all the records without text in the ISSN fields.
The macro looked at the bib record and copied the 022 field info. If the ISSN included the phrase (paper) or (print) then it deleted that information and saved the record.
75 records were updated using this proccess.
