> cat stats/new titles macro

I'm going to try to put together a series of macros to enable catalogers to easily record cataloging statistics via triggers. If anyone wants to work with me on it, they'd be most welcome! :-) The steps involved look like this:

Edit menu/Record's Triggers
Click New (for new trigger)
Choose Department (unit default)
Add Trigger Text (unit default) with opportunity to change default

The macro also needs to allow the cataloger to indicate whether the title is eligible for the new titles list. If it is, then the macro needs to add a new field ("NEW"), which has recently been setup by FCLA in Test, and record the following info: $$anew $$bYYYYMMDD.

The departments listed currently are the Aleph default. I'm working on getting a customized list in place.

If any of you have any tips, please pass them along.
