Thank you for your help a few weeks ago. I did get a sample collection working, and have just heard that the organisation is keen to continue - I now need tog et a couple of things working that I didn't finish before.

One of those is allowing for multiple values for Author and Subject. I have created additional columns in the .cfg file and put some test data in.
Where is the "allvalues" parameter put and can it be done through the GLI or do I have to edit the config file?

Do I also need to put mode=accumulate somewhere?

Hi Michael,

If you're using CSVPlug you will need to have multiple columns in the
Excel file for the same field, and put one value in each column.

Also, check you have the "-allvalues" option enabled for your classifiers.
