Hi Maura,

So, you're just adding more subject columns to the CSV? Yes, what you describe about overwriting is exactly what's happening...the CSV importer only allows for one subject per row.

I have a plugin example I started working on last week to show how to tweak the CSV importer...I'll try and finish that up tomorrow and send it out for people to have a look...

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Accession CSV Subject Import

Hi all,
I've been working on importing accessions with CSV files, but I've noticed that on import only one subject ever gets brought in (the last one). Is this a bug, or just a current limitation? I'm not getting an error, it just appears that the subject field keeps being over-written until the last subject, then imported.
