NAE… this isn’t one of the LONG ones… Origin/Date (both fields), Gender, Birth Date, etc. – If any of the records to be marked as a duplicate include data in these fields but this field is blank on the record to be retained, enter the data on the permanent record, and delete it from all others. On all records to be marked as duplicates, replace the last name with "Zzzzz" + the last name (example, Taylor would become Zzzzztaylor). When you hit enter, the system should prompt you at the bottom of the screen "Is this a Name Change (Y/N) “ Press 'N' and Enter. This will keep the system from retaining a history of the last name, and should also prevent the name appearing on most partial name lookups. The SSN should only be listed on the permanent record. If it is on a different record, make a note of the SSN, delete it from the duplicate record, and then add it to the permanent record (the system will not allow you to add the SSN to a record if it's still being used on another record). This date should only be on the permanent record, so enter it if necessary. Remove it from all other records. Any email address types other than PUN should exist only on the permanent record. Add those if necessary, and then delete them from all other records. PUN email address types will require conferral with the PIDB administrator. For additional information, see. Leave these as the system calculates them.
How DO you DO IT? Some data is addressed through UI – On IHS; Duplicate documents are deleted Missing entries are added to record-to- retain, then deleted from the duplicate ID MAILING record is removed at the colon prompt (or via PRG; very carefully)
The Secret is in the details… Each item on the previous slide is actually a link to a page of instructions on what to do – depending on what your report found For example, the NAE Screen includes instruction on what fields need to be addressed on the duplicate and added to the record to retain.
Verify… Run the custom process once you’ve done the cleanup to identify whether all merging is complete. The ‘duplicate’ should have nothing left in the report Set Privacy code in BIO to “Z”
