hi Stephen

You need to have Identifier metadata for each record - then it will work fine.
We normally generate a hash number for each one - you can use any string you like.
However, we use identifiers 1, 2, 3 etc for a separate purpose so dont just use numbers.
I used "record1", "record2" when I tried your collection. They need to be unique for
each record.
<Metadata name="Identifier">record1</Metadata>

Then it should work fine.

By the way - have you thought about using mgpp instead of mg? You can index all your
metadata in one index, and combine searches on different fields.

change the collect.cfg file to say

buildtype mgpp
indexes metadata
defaultindex metadata

and comment out the old indexes lines.

to just do some specific indexes, do
indexes Title,Creator
