Thanks, it works, and the latest version is good.

The [sibling:Subject] option works to produce a list of all the values, but it does not have any commas or identifiers to separate the values. I would like to list each "Subject" on a new line (Subject 1, Subject 2 etc, with only printing the later ones of they exist. Is it possible to do this? at present I have limited the number of Subjects to 2, which may make it easier.

Ideally I would like to be able to use multiple values for a hierarchy but I recall that this isn't possible.

Thanks again
Ed Robinson

Hello Ed,

You can use AZCompactList classifier, for which the "allvalues" parameter
is the default. Also, you can use [sibling:Subject] or [sibling:Author]
format statement to display all multiple values of Subject or Author in
