Hi Gayatri

You can modify the document links using format statements.
[link][icon][/link] links to the greenstone version,
[srclink][scicon][/srclink] links to the original (PDF in this case).

VList is the default format statement for vertical lists, and is used
for search results, classifiers, and document contents.

You probably want something like:
in your format - numleafdocs is set for bookshelves, which need
[link][icon][/link] to work properly.

Please see the greenstone tutorials for more info.

There is no easy way currently of making two files become one document.
However you can associate one of the files with the other file.

Use the -associate_ext option to PDFPlug, with the value xls (is that
the file extension for Excel?) Then the excel file will not be processed
itself, it will be associated with the PDF.

Then you can use [equivlink] to display a link to the associated file.
This was there in greenstone version 2.61, not sure about 2.60.
