Hi Renate.

it may be that the problem arises because in the fst, when indexing
repeatable fields, you are not including the % symbol that tells isis to
insert in each posting the number of the occurrence. Then all the keys are
being recorded as coming from the first occurrence .

You have

600 0 (|BIO_|v600^a,|, |v600^b/)

and the right way should be

600 0 (|BIO_|v600^a,|, |v600^b '%'/)

This is explained in
