Hi  Steve,

A colleague of mine wrote a Python script that will import DOs with multiple file versions (based on CSV input).  It also links the digital objects to archival objects on import.

How do you structure a CSV file to import a digital object with multiple file_versions, i.e. multiple page images of a letter. It’s not clear from those templates whether you can do that.

I have looked at section 14.2.5 "Digital Object CSV" of the manual, the Digital Object CSV Map (http://archivesspace.org/importexport), and the Digital Object CSV Template (https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/blob/master/backend/app/exporters/examples/digital_object/aspace_digital_object_import_template.csv).
