Gary,

This situation is frustrating and can also happen in the reverse. MARCIVE
told us that if the 074 has (MF) in it, we will usually get a fiche record.

If the item is published in paper originally with some libraries getting
fiche, and GPO sends us microfiche, and MARCIVE sends a print record:
we add microfiche information to the print record

If the item is published in paper originally with some libraries getting
fiche, and GPO sends us print, and MARCIVE sends a fiche record:
we catalog the print on OCLC and get rid of the fiche record

If it is a serial with mixed print and fiche, I use the print record.

This is discussed on our homepage in the "Microfiche" section at:
