Hi Rich

Try editing gsdl/perllib/plugins/

At the end of the file, in sub process_type, there is a bit like

my $filename = &util::filename_cat($base_dir, $file);
$doc_obj->associate_file($filename, "doc.$doc_ext", undef, $cursection);
my $doclink = "<a href="/gsdl/collect/gsarch/index/assoc/[archivedir]/doc.

change this to

my $filename = &util::filename_cat($base_dir, $file);
my ($finalname) = $filename =~ /[/\]([^/\]+)$/;
$doc_obj->associate_file($filename, $finalname, undef, $cursection);
my $doclink = "<a

This should now save the word files under the original name.
