Hi Fabio

I have just tried this. I did a search, selected some records, chose
MARC (Non-unicode/MARC-8) format, and clicked Save.
I saved the file as xxx.marc.

This imported fine. And also exploded fine.

When I tried saving using MARC (Unicode/UTF-8) then Greenstone could not
import it.

Is this similar to what you tried?

Regards,
Katherine
