    I have a data feed with about 3,000 records. These records are categorized into about 10 different sections. Is there a way for me to build my pages, and have each category and its respective Index/Detail web pages automatically populate their own directories? If so, do I need to create these directories in advance? Is there documentation that might help me understand?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    From the WebMerge Help page on the Detail Pages tab (also applies to Index Pages;that page has been updated for the next build):

    ------------------

    Name based on contents of field

    ...
    The data in this field can also specify sub-folders for generated HTML pages. If the field you specify for the file name contains a standard UNIX folder name (separated by "/") before the file name (e.g., "myfolder/filename") it will create the specified subfolder as it creates the file. These can even be several levels deep if you like, using something like this:

    subfolder/anotherfolder/page001

    That data will generate a file named "page001.html" inside of a folder named "another folder", inside of a folder named "subfolder".
