Production Overlay

The Production Overlay page enables you to import production images and Bates numbers for documents produced outside of Nebula.

Production overlays are a specific kind of data overlay used to associate a production most likely prepared outside of Nebula with existing records in a Nebula review matter. The production overlay always contains a cross-reference file, XRef, which is a delimited load file in either CSV or Concordance DAT format. The XRef file contains three columns the Document Id of the existing Nebula document receiving the overlay the BegBates and EndBates values for the produced version of the document. The XRef file should not contain a header row. The production overlay typically contains production images, along with an image load file.
