Can anyone tell me how to swap a file to another if it has already been
submitted to DSpace? I have a dissertation record in our installation of
DSpace and now need to change the file attached to another. Any help?

Probably the easiest way to swap a file (although it's admittedly *not*
that easy, yet) is to login as your local DSpace Administrator, and
click on the "Edit" button when you are viewing the item in DSpace.
That button will bring you to a page to edit any information about the
item. Unfortunately, this page is currently not very pretty, and only a
librarian familiar with Dublin Core would have a chance at understanding
In any case, if you scroll down to the "Bitstreams" section at the very
bottom, you will see the ability to "Remove" existing bitstreams/files
and "Add" new bitstreams/files. Please note that this doesn't update
the qualified dublin core "format.extent" and "format.mimetype" fields
automatically. So, you may wish to manually update those as well.
In the future, you may also want to join the "dspace-tech" mailing list
(I've copied it to this message), since oftentimes that can be a better
place to post any specific questions about using DSpace software (or
issues encountered). However, since there are a lot of questions asked
there (both technical and non-technical) it sometimes does get a little
busy at times.
