[Archivesspace_Users_Group] “An error occurred loading this record" and merging Top Container questions

I wonder if the issue has to do with your indexing. That the records display in the tree and PDF indicate that they're there. If you didn't have permission to edit them, they would still load, you just wouldn't get an edit button. And if they were still suppressed and you didn't have permission to view them, they just wouldn't appear in the tree. Can you ask your system administrator to reindex and see if that resolves the issue? (And since you've mentioned suppression a few times, I take it these were suppressed, then unsuppressed? Is there anything else different/unusual about how this particular set of components was created or edited? Just trying to understand what the sequence of events may have been.)

As for merging top containers, this is not currently possible. There is a feature request at https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-1436.

Hi Christine,
Thanks for getting back to me.  I do have system permissions to edit/unsupress records, but I am concerned that there is a lingering bug in the middle of everything.  Attached is the screen shot, although I am not sure how helpful it will be.  There seems to be no way to load or edit this section, which appears to be currently unsupressed, since it shows up in the PDF export.
Another question that recently cropped up (sorry guys, lots of questions…) is if it’s possible to merge Top Containers?  From entering data in RDE and entering data in the conventional way, there somehow developed two duplicate top containers “Box X.”  Is there a simple way to merge these two?  Just curious!
Thanks, everyone, for putting up with my questions and for any help you could provide!
