Thank You Richard,

I have seen the faq, but I can not get the relation to show up in the
output and I am not sure what to put into relation metadata.

This is what I have done:

1 - inserted [RelatedDocuments] variable in "DocumentText" feature

2 - inserted data into the dc.relation field (I'm using dublin core
metadata at the moment, but very likely I will add a new metadata set)

No matter what I put into dc.relation, I always get:

.. no related documents ..

I have tried with OID and collection name like this :

collectionname HASH011179dd1f0c321aec510320 HASH01f51d867137ebcef699710c

or

HASH011179dd1f0c321aec510320 HASH01f51d867137ebcef699710c

or

HASH011179dd1f0c321aec510320


Can you give me an example hot to make it work?


Also, How can gsdl know wich metadata to look for in order to build
relations?

Thank you and kind regards,
