Listing documents and their attachments

Recommended Posts

I have a query about the format of exported lists of emails and their attachments.  


I am presently preparing a list of documents for discovery in civil litigation in New Zealand.  My jurisdiction requires that when I prepare a list of documents for discovery and exchange that the attachment to an email is listed as a separate document immediately following the email.  Each document must have sequential number which follows from the document before it.


Anyone else had to deal with this issue?

We have been using the CSV format when exporting and then transferring the lists onto Excel spreadsheets.  


The documents fields need to be 

document ID:
document type:
parent document ID:
exchange documents electronically by way of—
a single, continuous table or spreadsheet, with each column exclusively containing the detail from above.

The Parent ID is available in the export to relativity load file, I have used "RECORD_ID_GROUP_BEGIN" in the load file to link the email bodies and attachments together. 


You can also open a relativity load file "Export.dat" in excel as a delimited file and then save it as an xls
