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 from 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
