Hi John

First, maybe a dumb question, but are you sure that the file is being
processed by ProCite plugin and not eg TextPlug?

Secondly, maybe you haven't got the split_exp set up correctly. This is
a regular expression that separates records in the file.
" " should split the file at each line. (You might like to try r also).

If you can't get it working, can you send us a small example of the
exported database.

Regards,
Katherine

Hope this helps
