[EP-tech] Re: Check uploaded document for PDF/A compatibility



Do you get an error message?  How did you add the field?

Have you watched my 'adding a new field' training video?  http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Training_Video:Add_A_Field -- it's adding one to an eprint, but it's the same process to add one to a document.
