Hi Kathy,

The comma delimited file has commas separating
fields, double quotes around field values, and CF/LF between records.

The tab delimited file has tabs for both
separating fields and delimiting field values, and CF/LF between records.

Both files have txt extensions and the
process_exp parameter of the ProCite plugin is the default (?i)(\.txt)$

Effectively the normal build was being done
before by TEXTPlug. When I remove TEXTPlug (or
move it to after ProCitePlug), the normal build
fails saying "0 documents were considered for
processing". Changing split_exp to \r\n from \n does not make any difference.

Even when TEXTPlug was first (and also with
TEXTPlug removed or moved to the end), the
explode is done with ProCitePlug producing a nul
file for each record and a metadata.xml file with
only the file name as metadata.

So, the result is still negative. I am sending
you offline the two ProCite text files.

Thanks, John
