Others are 'required': these have no check box, and a value must be given before the download is carried out. </Text>

To see or edit any metadata, you can "explode" the file in the Librarian Interface and view or edit the metadata afterwards. Alternatively, particularly if you are maintaining a master external application, you can go back to the program that created the file, make your corrections, and reimport.</Text> 
    157157<Text id="exm-3">"Exploding" a metadata database file splits it into individual records, with viewable and editable metadata. This process is irreversible: the original metadata file is deleted.</Text> 
    158158<Text id="exm-4">Explodable files have a green icon in the Collection tree. To explode one, right click it and choose "Explode metadata database". A popup window shows options for the exploding process. The first option ("plugin") specifies the plugin to be used for exploding. In most cases, only one plugin will process a particular type of file, but in some cases, where different file types share the same filename extension, there may be two plugins that both process files with that extension. The "input_encoding" option can be used to specify the encoding of the database. The "metadata_set" option specifies the metadata set to which the new fields generated by exploding should be added. If none is specified, you will be prompted for what to do with each new field in the database: add it as a new element to an existing metadata set, merge with another element, or ignore.</Text>
