Dear Lucia,

Michael fixed in v. 2.71 a problem in which file
names containing the "&" character were not
recognized when exploding with the file name in
document_field. Could you check to see if the
files which are still not recognized might not
have a special character in their name or some
other common characteristic. Best regards, John Rose
